reap what you sow

thats what we did last night
we reaped real good what we sowed

i raise everything we grow here organically
and i preach the organic gospel every chance i can
i even added it to the name of this blog

this year in the late winter and early spring
i gradually took my time and redid all my garden beds
i dug them up and placed cardboard newspapers limbs
then leaves in the bottom of the beds
then i layered newspapers leaves soil compost
until i filled up the beds

then i placed 3 inches of compost mostly that i made
myself here its called country n compost

(leaves lots of leaves cardboard newspapers feedbags lots
of chicken poop and all shredded to a fine material by
our country n hens and composted for weeks and months)

and then added to some beds the lady bug composts when
i ran out of mine
i added an organic fertilizer then a sprinkling of cottonseed meal
and in the planting hole when i planted plants i used
earthworm castings ie worm poop

then if  i had an insect problem i used organic methods only
pick um off spray em off
so i really dont usually have much insect problems though

then its all watered only with cloud juice ie rainwater either
from the sky or from my rainwater collection tanks

that my friends is an organic garden

so last night we got to reap what we sow

from our garden we got
egg plants

my wife she made her own tomato sauce using mollies tomato sauce
secret ingredients i think are fresh ingredients and brandy

she cooked us mollies recipe of eggplant parmesan from her cook book
primi piatti by mollie ahlstrand

i know mollie is a great cook in her restaurant in montecita california
and she has written this great italian cookbook
i dont think she could have cooked an eggplant parmesan that tasted
this good
with ingredients that were just minutes from growing on the plants and

yes the absolutely best eggplant parmesan
ive ever tasted

we reaped what we sowed
