Our backyard gardening harvest this week was one of the biggest gardening harvest and most diverse from the Food Forest ever. This is beyond organic gardening. This type of gardening is as close to natural farming as you can get. At this time of year the amount of food each week is to much to keep up with, so its time to get preserving.
