    Default Organic Farming

    National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service

    There are a large number of well written PDF papers and presentations available on all sorts of organic topics. I found ones explaining plant extracts, compost tea, & various materials and methods very useful. You don't need to pay for them, just open the free PDF.

    Might be some usefull info in methods others may wanna use at home but organic produce is 1 of the biggest scams of all yimes. lol
    Though if there's anyone you can't realy blame for jumping onboard the marketing band wagaon finally I suppose farmers would be it.
    I still to this day haven't found a single person who could show me an inorganic produce or meat though.lol

    I look at things like Tarantula, Shark, Fox Farms, Bloom Booster, etc. and just shake my head. Look at the ingredients. There's nothing you can't put together for a few cents yourself. Maybe I never get huge results, but I will get quality and not have moths flying out of my wallet at the end of the day. Plus...I like trying new things...papaya extract is coming soon Maybe one day when I really can't experiement then I'll go pay $$ at the hydro store...

    Should look into nutritional yeast, n malt extract too, if ya wanna stay away from paying for over priced "food" for our little friends.
    It's all good stuff for us home growers,
    Assuming farmers weren't already doing the same whereever possible, even if souly for cost savings, is where they get the unwitting public with little stickers on fruit n shit.lol

    Good stuff looking for easy food that's easily affordable tweets.

    Perhaps Organic needs to be replaced with Non-Chemical, Non-synthetic, Non-Salt, Sustainable, Non-sterilizing, Microbial, etc..

    I hesitate to use the word Natural, as there is nothing un-natural that we can create, it's all natural, but only part of it fits our general idea of Nature.

    Fantastic list of what's in plants you might want to use for a fermented plant extract.

    http://www.oregonbd.org/Class/accum.htm

    Top on the lists of plants with lots of goodies include stinging nettle, comfrey, plantains, horse tail, pig weed, dulse, dandelions, & watercress.

    Just be careful of what and how you ferment. If you're not careful you can wind up with a subversive phytotoxin that you didn't bargain for. Sorta like the same idea w hy I don't compost tomatoes (although for the effort I could remove the interior jelly....). The other issue is that it needs to be differentiated whether the material you want to use is the leaf, flower, stem , or root.

    I looked up more about phytotoxins so I didn't accidently make some...doesn't seem likely to be a problem unless I start using items like fox gloves, potato & tomato leaves/vines, rhubarb leaves, lupines,...any of the items I"m likely to try, such as dandelions, alfalfa, comfrey leaf, parsley, chives, etc. are good to go. But a very good point...look up the likley outcome!

    One note, even without an air stone, the current alfalfa extract bubbled up & over flowed its pot! One small cube in a gallon = lots of action. Leave lots of space in the container for bubble action.
