"The soil is, as a matter of fact, full of live organisms. It is essential to conceive of it as something pulsating with life, not as a dead or inert mass."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Wedding-bell-peppers
Portland Press Herald - 6/9/2010.
By Meredith Goad – WASHINGTON - Julia Davis and her fiance, Andy McLeod, surveyed their 7,500-square-foot garden in a peaceful meadow, pointing out where they've planted potatoes, squash, cucumbers and onions that are now shooting out of the fine sandy loam like strands of hair on a balding man's head. "Some days it looks big, some days it looks tiny," McLeod, 34, said of the garden. "The days we weed, it looks bigger," added Davis, who is 30.
