Planting onions isn't so bad after all!! At the Moses Organic Conference, Mark and Jim saw a self-propelled machine you could lay on to weed and plant. But it only held one person. "We can do better than that!", we thought, so we built a series of trailers that holds eight people. See it in action by clicking on this youtube:
Who said life is easy?? This youtube shows the battle with the cold to save the high tunnel crops at Bluebird Gardens:
Compost tea is a real treat for the plants!! It is a combination of our Purple Cow Compost, their special food for the compost, Organic Gem Fish and black strap molasses. Jim researched and built a marvelous compost tea machine that sends a vortex of oxygen into the swirling tea mix. The tea is a terrific root drench or foliar spray. Leaves, the energy production plant of the plant, become huge with compost tea! Watch this youtube by clicking below: 4/5/12
