Hi everyone. Did you know that a balanced system and healthy soil/plants are the only long term solution to all your garden problems? Any time you interfere with nature’s system by using a pesticide, even a natural one, you are weakening the entire system. Above ground, nature is using chemical signals to call in predators to eat the pests that are eating your plants. Below ground, the mycorrhizal network and soil web are breaking down and distributing nutrients. Every time you use commercial fertilizers or pesticides, even organic ones, you are enabling dependence instead of creating a healthy, happy, sustainable ecosystem. I know that not everyone has the opportunity, but those of you who do will be so much better off if you feed the system and not the plant and let nature find the balance without you putting your finger on the scale when she’s just about got it done.
