Susan F.

Thank you so much for posting about this. So few people really know (or care) what is going on in farming.


Yikes indeed. I never even thought about why there are so many out of control weeds. The word "deathspray" says it all.

My wife and I are in the initial stages (now that the youngest is heading to Kindergarten!) of setting up a market garden. It is so important to share this information. Everyone seems to think that Roundup is fine and defend it to crazy lengths. It is used all around me but I will never use it no matter how hard it is to tame weeds. Biodynamic IS beautiful, but I need to get more experience around horses...they can get you into some scary situations if you don't know what you are doing! Thanks for this post.


Susan, Antiqua and Peter, thanks for checking in and sharing and posting.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
