Just putting the #tractor away after we finished #seeding the last of our #testplots—about a month late because it kept #raining in September. #groworganic #organicfarming #organic #organicag #bobquinnorganicfarmer

Updates on the seedlings! Growing in beyond organic cow manure compost (from happy cows on open feilds. Malibu compost's: Bu's blend, biodynamic compost) mixed with 1/3 perlite for areation. Have given them a 1inch layer of filtered water in a tray everytime the top soil starts to look dry. They will get an organic foliar spray of natural mistik (by dragonflyearthmedicine) the morning after tomorrow to inoculate and promote propper biology (mold/bacteria) in the phyllosphere of the plant( part that grows above ground) The benificial mold (for example: Trichoderma harzian) will inoculate the tissues and leaves of the plant, overcompeting bad/pathogenic molds that will harm the plants health and kill it. The bacteria (for example: BT aka Bacillus Thuringiensis) will inoculate the tissues and leaves of the plant, infecting then killing pests that attempt to eat the plant.

Btw the tomato leaves at the end look a bit funny because the first leaves that sprouted from the seeds are getting ready to fall off.

Collecting fences from the last paddock of high density tiny goat grazing for 2018. So much biomass is accumulating! This is an area of the retired market garden that borders a couple of rows of currants, gooseberries and a row of rhubarb. I wish we had cross fencing for winter grazing, since there is still so much forage here...but that will have to wait until next year’s list of projects. This area was grazed twice this summer.

Wes and I are taking advantage of this #Indiansummer and good moisture to #seed nearly 100 varieties of #khorasan #wheat from all over the world. Normally a #springwheat, we are #planting them in the #fall to test for winter hardiness. With the changing #climate, finding #crops that can adapt is imperative for the future of #agriculture. #climatechange #organicfarming #organicag #organic #bobquinnorganicfarmer

Earlier this week #GregGianforte came through Big Sandy and we had a chance to chat a bit about the future of #organicfarming and #agriculture in #Montana. I am a member of his #ag advisory committee so it was nice to welcome him to my hometown. #organicag #organic #bobquinnorganicfarmer

Fair trade is about more than living wages, excellent working conditions & social benefits for workers.⠀

To us, fair trade also means supporting climate-friendly farming practices, investing in community development projects, and guaranteeing stable prices for farmers.⠀

Serendipol’s Fair Trade Fund has funded a range of infrastructure, medical and educational projects, including: building vital infrastructure in marginalized communities, such as bridges, roads and electricity, and purchasing critical medical equipment for hospitals and clinics in more remote rural regions.

A recent #throwback to the hurried #harvest of our #organic #dryland #squash before the first real #frost settled in. If you look closely, you can see the first frosts had already nipped the tips of the leaves. On a side note: this particular squash was a new one for me—it's a small angel hair #spaghettisquash and I'm excited to try it. #farminthefall #eatwhatyougrow #groworganic #organicfarming #organicag #tbt #bobquinnorganicfarmer

These #dryland #LavLavbeans from #Israel were slow to develop over the #summer and flowers just started to bud days before our first heavy #frost. But I thought the plant's #purplevines were beautiful. What do you think? #eatwhatyougrow #groworganic #organicfarming #organicag #organic #bobquinnorganicfarmer

Our dryland #tomatoes did remarkably well this year! Generally we found the varieties from my #garden (with lots of water) were larger than the #dryland plots (with the last rain in early July). That said, most of our dryland tomatoes were more flavorful. These little #organic #cherrytomatoes, in particular, were as sweet as #berries and made for excellent #snacking! #eatwhatyougrow #groworganic #organicfarming #organicag #bobquinnorganicfarmer

At the far end of the trellis in our #prairieorchard is my new favorite #grapevine. These #tablegrapes are as sweet as our #concordgrapes are tart and this was the first year they had produced a crop. If anyone figures out how to share flavors on social media, I’ll be the first in line with this sweet treat! ;) #eatwhatyougrow #groworganic #organic #organicfarming #organicag #bobquinnorganicfarmer

It was a race to get the last of our #organic #dryland #melons #harvested before the frost. We harvested over 100 but nearly half had spots of mold due to a couple weeks of cool, damp weather. But that's okay—I made juice to enjoy over the winter with the good parts and the healthy #watermelons are in our garage, ripe and ready to eat! Next year Charley has plans to grow more of the varieties that did well to sell in local markets—keep an eye out, they’re a real treat! #montanamelons #eatwhatyougrow #groworganic #organicfarming #organicag #bobquinnorganicfarmer

Visiting Dr. Bronner's & @Alaffia's fair trade projects in West Africa with @fairworldprj! Pictured here are Dr. Bronner's CEO, David Bronner, and Alaffia's founder, Olowo-n'djo Tchala.

We define true fair trade supply chains as those that benefit the workers who produce the goods, as well as the Earth from which those goods are grown.

So, while we ensure fair prices for farmers, and living wages & excellent working conditions for workers, we also invest in soil-rebuilding regenerative organic agriculture to help address climate change. #FairTradeMonth

The bi-annual Pascalina Herb Fair in Montmorenci, SC was such a a treat to attend! Pascalina specializes in flowers and herbs of all kinds, and of course attracts pollinators galore! If you look closely, they have several honey bee hives on the edge of their organic growing fields! Their produce (thanks to our friends the pollinators) is sold to Aiken markets and Atlanta restaurants. YUM .
