There was excitement in the trees. The birds were flying around making a lot of noise. It seems they did not share our pleasure in the visit from the Bald Eagle.

Dry. We need rain. We used the transplanter today to water the field planted transplants. I know the rain will come. I do feel like the child looking at the clock waiting for what seems like the longest time. It will rain, but not on my schedule.

When you purchase organic vegetables indirectly you are purchasing organic seeds. The benefit is that the plants that produce the seeds are grown organically and adapted to ecological growing methods and environments.
Organic seed often costs significantly more than standard seed as you can see from the price of 5,000 kohlrabi seeds.
This is one of many reasons why it costs farmers more money to grow organically.
We are happy to pay the price. Our purchases create the world we want to live in. High Mowing is an all organic seed company and we support them.
