Sustainable....at least the weeds anyway.

I guess I'm just venting my frustrations. This organic gardening thing is harder than it sounds. I mean...it sounds so simple! You just plant the seeds, no chemicals, and watch it grow, right? Wrong! The weeds have decided to declare war on our organic/heirloom
oasis, and the bugs...well I swear sometimes I hear them laughing at me while I'm pulling the massive piles of weeds out. Sure there are organic pesticides (tried them) and organic weed killers, fertilizers, etc. but when you're growing 1/2 acre of produce
it gets to be more expensive than visiting one of those healthy stores and coughing up $8 a pound for organic tomatoes. But, I will persist. My family will have healthy produce (God willing) and I'll fight the good fight. And hopefully in the fall I will
sit back and have a good chuckle about it all whilst canning my crop. :)
