RE: Smart Farmers

In my personal experience, experts who learn about farming and
gardening in college are missing a great deal of common sense unless they
actually get out and get their hands dirty. One particular person with a
Masters Degree in Horticulture comes to mind. He now claims he never
suggested it is so difficult to grow food "the right way" that we should
simply buy our fruits and vegetables at Safeway. His way is complicated
(with complex fertilizing, spraying, and pruning schedules) not to
mention difficult and expensive. After learning how he thinks food has
to be grown, I was more sure than ever that I wanted to stick with my
mother's (organic) methods.
I have a bachelor's degree, but not in agriculture or
horticulture, and firmly believe in the school of hard knocks. And I am
continuing a family tradition of organic food production.
Best Regards, Edna
