SEVEN RULES to farm and garden by

After a life time of studying nature, and finally learning to farm and garden in tune with the natural laws, I have come to the conclusion that there are rules to follow that will make our plants grow abundantly, free of troublesome insects and disease, be more nutritious and even taste better.

1. ALWAYS USE THE BEST ADAPTED VARIETIES FOR EACH ENVIRONMENT.

2. PLANT IN THE PREFERRED SEASON

3. BALANCE THE MINERAL CONTENT OF THE SOIL

4. BUILD AND MAINTAIN THE ORGANIC CONTENT (HUMUS) OF THE SOIL.

5. DO NOTHING TO HARM THE BENEFICIAL SOIL LIFE.

6. CONSIDER TROUBLESOME INSECTS AND DISEASES AS SYMPTOMS OF ONE OF THE ABOVE RULES BEING VIOLATED.

7. HAVE PATIENCE. MOTHER NATURE GIVES BIRTH, BUT FATHER TIME CONTROLS THE CYCLES.
