"One hears a lot about the rules of good husbandry; there is only one — leave the land far better than you found it."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Waiting for pea planting time
Portland Press Herald - 3/25/2011.
by Julie Harris. Snow and cold continue to bear down, but there is no doubt that spring has come. I can hear it in the hollow mournful “coah, cooo, cooo, coo” of the mourning dove sitting in a nearby pine.
