Organic Farming has many challenges. Some times I am tempted to just go ahead and spray some Round-Up or Sevin. Tempted only!. Not that I ever would, but occasionally the amount of work involved and the limited number of hours in any given day makes that path seem easier. Then I come back to my senses and see the value of pesticide and chemical free farming. So what if I am out at night with a flashlight plucking slugs off cabbage. Never mind that GiGi and I are “squashing” squash bugs and looking for their eggs, constantly. Organic is the path that we have chosen. With all the “hands-on” work we continue to stand firm in our belief that organic farming is worth it. When we deliver produce, we are confident that we know exactly what has gone into it’s production, from seed to fruit!
As we move forward with our adventure in Organic farming, we are motivated by the positive feedback that we get from our customers. They, like us, believe that preventative nutritional health care is key, and that starts with clean food. Sure you can get organic produce at your local supermarket, but only by shopping with a local farmer (Gigis Organic Gardens) can you be assured that your produce is fresh and that the varieties of vegetables are grown for taste and nutrient content. Most supermarket vegetable varieties are grown for their ability to be shipped across the country, and may have sat on a truck for days. Not exactly fresh. At Gigi’s Organic Garden Club, your vegetables are picked in the morning and most times delivered the same day. Our varieties are grown for their taste. Delicious and nutritious.
Gigi’s Organic Gardens will be taking Fall bed orders for the next few weeks. So check out our website, http://www.gigisorganic.com and see what all the “Buzz” is about.
