Our garden produces a rich variety of vegetables. Everything is grown the old-fashioned way. We practice companion planting by planting crops that benefit one another close together. In order to prevent bugs and disease, we rotate our crops and spray beneficial microbes to enhance their natural immunity. We also maintain an earthworm farm which produces the organic fertilizer for our farm. Worm casting introduce the richest form of organic matter into the soil. They gradually release nutrients and inoculate the soil with healthy bacteria and fungi. Casting is effective on plant growth because they contain plant hormones that stimulate growth and improve disease resistance. Many consider earthworm casting as the best organic fertilizer.
