Nature is not more complex than we think, but more complex than we can think.
– Frank Egler
Miracles do happen! Just last week I was steering my brain away from how hot and dusty things were around here, holding on to the thought of the one weather forecast of possible early El Nino rains coming in late September. As I walked the growing areas this morning, the soil was spongy with moisture and all the good compost we’ve worked in. I could almost feel (or hear) the millions (or trillions) of micro-organisms doing their thing ultimately feeding the crops with all the nutrients the plant needs and in turn, what our bodies. You can’t get a plate of good nutrient laden food like this from hydroponics or corporate farming. You have to feed the soil that in turn, feeds us. Not all food is created equal. We are so grateful for the rain.
I still want to promote and encourage you to try our fresh local honey. We have a fresh batch and it’s amazing. The health benefits of local honey are well known but it’s the taste and the lingering flavor that will bring you back for more. Order two jars and receive a 10% discount! Fresh Local Honey
