As I did an inspection of all growing vegetables and flowers this morning, I couldn’t help but feel great. Not only do the plants look healthy and strong, but they are full of blooms and fruit. It really makes me excited to see all this production without the use of any chemicals.
Those of us in Tennessee and surrounding states just recently were inundated with news reports about contaminated produce. This time it was E.Coli bacteria on vegetables. We see these reports time and time again. If you really focus on the frequency of such contamination events, it will start to “freak you out” a bit. Having leafy vegetables etc exposed to E.Coli means only one thing. POOP! The vegetables have been sprayed or cross-contaminated with cow manure. Not well composted manure, but fresh green cow “poop”.
Here at Sinking Creek Farm, the only animal product we use is fish emulsion, which we often make ourselves. Coupled with our home-made compost tea and collected kitchen and yard waste, we are seeing amazing results.
There is just no way around the fact that Local, Organic produce is the best. Do you realize when you stroll through the produce section at your local supermarket, most vegetables have traveled an average of 1100 miles to get from Field to Fork? That’s disturbing to say the least. At Gigi’s, we harvest and deliver on the same day.
