  • “USDA Organic” is barely ‘organic’.
  • Avoiding “chemicals” is well and good, but not ‘organic’.
  • If you still need the “crutches” of factory-chemicals, you haven’t reached “organic”.

  • Organic Pesticides: Insecticidal-soaps, Diatomaceous Earth, etc., even ‘picking and killing’ are still “crutches” supporting a “sick” system.
  • Bad Bugs prefer Sick Plants. It is called recycling.
  • Good Bugs prefer Bad Bugs. It is called recycling.
  • If bugs were designed to consume the BEST that we could grow, the whole system would be SELF-TERMINATING!
  • The more stressed the plants, the harder the ‘bugs’ work to reduce these plants to humus (organic matter).
  • Blight and Fungal dis-eases are simply Nature’s agents to recycle sick and dying plant tissue!
  • Weeds indicate that ‘something’ is RIGHT for growing that weed, but not for the crop you want!
  • Weeds and diseases do not indicate a deficiency of pesticides in the system.
  • Learn to ‘read’ your weeds, and you won’t need a soil analysis.
  • Learn to ‘read’ your weeds, and why they are flourishing, and you will know which nutrients are deficient or missing.
  • If your desirable plants are sick and suffering, your soil food web is too! (soilfoodweb.com)
  • “Correct the cause behind the cause behind the cause, and the symptoms will disappear!” (T. Galen Hieronymus, pHD, 1895-1988)
