Today I mowed the cover crop in the greenhouse and 3 rows in the garden. This was an oat/vetch/pea/bean mix with 8 different species. First I weed wacked it at different heights, then 3 passes with the mower at different heights. The water had been off in the greenhouse for 2 weeks, and the inside temps reached 119F for several days, but I still had surface and deep moisture! And the soil health and aggregation is superb! 
This ground is high pH(8.0), with high pH groundwater (8.3) with high sodium levels (detrimental to plant and soil health), and heavy clay soil. Conventional agriculture would say, spray Roundup to kill it, or till it in, and apply sulfur to lower pH and gypsum to break up clay. ‘Maybe’ apply compost. But, we are concerned with soil health, plant health and human health. That means, no tilling (kills soil biology), no spraying (harmful to health), and we found very quickly that sulfur and gypsum weren’t working (excessive sulfur harms biology, and gypsum did nothing but raise total soil salts). The solution? Cover crops! We do apply compost before seeding the cover, and we feed the soil with bio-inoculants, bio-stimulants, and bio-fertilizers. You see for us, we only want things that promote life here (bio), not things promote death (the -cides). Of course, in a holistic system, death is a natural part of life. Dying plants and soil biome promote life to other symbiotic beings. This is what #regenerativeagriculture is all about.

1.5 acres of learning. A few nice tantalising drops of rain last night watered in our inoculation of @nutri_tech.solutions root-gaurd biological blend which will hopefully reduce the root-knot-nematode pressure which we've found in our new plot here @thefarmatbyronbay ... This plot will be transforming in many other ways than the soil biology though! The evolution has begun.

We’ve been maturing a fungal dominant compost that will be used for a new planting bed that will be filled with an assortment of trees (hence the focus on ensuring the soil is dominated by fungal hyphae versus bacterial biomass).
.
This morning while collecting samples for testing we uncovered a massive mycelial network that has bonded soil organic matter into a humongous aggregate. So much mycelium… so many smiles!
When the trees are planted we think they’ll be happy too! 😊

TropSanto and Sunburn bred by @oni_seed_co @oninoodles in all organic living soil from my veg tent ❤ I keep this tent hot and humid and the ladies love it! Noticed some lightened colour on the new growth so added some alfalfa meal, granular humic acids and some crab meal and watered it in a bit before closing the tent.

NEW FARM SERIES SUPPER
.
Let's talk beef, or more specifically about an animal's role in improving our planet, creating a healthy and diverse farm ecosystem, a better food chain, and healthier soil beneath our feet.  Beef has been a lightning rod for industrial farming lately and rightfully so.  Let's talk about it and about the alternatives. Your role as a consumer is key.  Learn how decisions you make every day affect how your food is raised and where it comes from.
.
 Join us tomorrow night for a fresh new series of farm suppers that we will host over the fall and winter months.  October will focus on raising animals in a regenerative,  sustainable, humanitarian, and environmentally responsible way.  Mother Nature is all about diversity and so is our farm.  Come hear an energetic and unique perspective from Farmer Dean on how one little farm in the Midwest can have a global impact.  This talk will make you think differently about the food you eat..

Soil is one of the most critical factors in agriculture. Without productive soil it becomes difficult and sometimes impossible to produce any of the food or fibre we use today (Sindelar, 2019). Agricultural Soil sustainability refers to soil management to maintain soil quality and to avoid soil degradation (White et al. 2012). As soil quality increases so does agricultural production, however, soil can also be degraded as a result of overproduction.The OECD outlines the three main processes by which agricultural soil is degraded:
(1) Physical (erosion, compaction)
(2) Chemical (acidification, salinization)
(3) Biological Degradation (declines in soil organic matter).

Keep your microbes, beneficial bacteria, nematodes, arthropods, and earthworms healthy! Blumats help you maintain the best moisture for the most healthy, living soil.  Moisture is necessary to provide the optimum environment for the microbes and to prevent them from dying or going into dormancy. You cannot have active bacteria, protozoa, or nematodes without the water necessary for their transport and other life functions.

So this year when I planted my garlic (like three weeks ago because I felt like starting early) I inoculated the rows as I planted the garlic seed cloves with a nice drenching of water soluble mycorrihizae! @plantsuccessorganics actually offers a granulated mycorrihizae which if I had it on me at the time would have been perfect for this job! I use the water soluble with my biological compost tea every other week so I just went ahead and used some of that. Both work great but the "soluble" has a bit more mycorrihizae per container compared to the granulated, that's why I tend to just go with the one. Anyways why do I inoculate the soil and seed garlic? When I start a plant off I like to provide it with an environment containing everything it needs and then some! The surplus of mycorrihizae allows the plants to utalize as much of the nutrients as it needs to thrive while also taking in more water to stay well hydrated! A well hydrated and overall healthy plant is for the most part untouchable in the eyes of a pest that is there to take the weak plants out! Now as for the garlic I planted 6 different varieties this year, 4 hardneck and 2 softneck. When you plant garlic make sure to only plant the larger and nicest shaped outer cloves on your garlic heads (I just use the inner cloves in the kitchen). The same goes for saving your own "seed garlic" from next year's harvest... Save the largest heads and only plant the largest outer cloves from those heads each year about 5-6 inches apart, 2-3 inches deep with a nice 2-3 in ens of wood chips ontop. Then water them in initially with a nice generous amount of mycorrihizae! If your interested in ordering some mycorrihizae from @plantsuccessorganics use coupon code "fall15" to get 15% off! It's a perfect time to get it spread in the garden as it will have all winter to grow and spread throuout the soil structure that way it's ready to work with your plants ASAP in the spring!! #mycorrhizae . . . #growingbacktoeden #backtoeden #gardening #backtoedengarden #homestead #homesteader #sustainability #sustainable #selfsufficiency #permaculture #groworganic #organic #soilbiology #garlic #plantinggarlic #WillowTheGardenDog

Have our modern agricultural practices been sabotaging the fungal and bacterial populations in the soil to the point where the amount of nutrients in our diet has been compromised?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
During World War II, petroleum was turned into chemicals used in extermination the Jews and in fighting war. After World War II,  Petroleum companies were left with an excess of petroleum that they no longer had a use for. They found out that petroleum could be used as chemical fertilizer and that's what they used it for. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the first time in history, farmers ignored the generational wisdom of good crop practices. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The farmers became convinced that fertilizing crops with chemicals saved time, increased yield, and created healthier, greener plants. The plants were greener, but they weren’t healthier.. why? they were lacking major nutrients and the plants were weak.  As these chemicalized plants are more subject to disease and pests,  the solution was to add more chemicals  in the form of pesticides ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The damage to our soil reflects the damage happening within our bodies and the increase in chronic illnesses in the world at large. When we heal our soil, we heal. What's on your plate?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
