soil biology & good bugs
Microbes and their microbial networks are the foundation of life and imperative to maintaining a healthy organic garden. Mykos and Azos form symbiotic relationships with plants and increase their resilience to drought, synthesize necessary nutrients for the plant when needed, and form spongy fungal networks that connect plants together like a community. They keep soil fluffy, aid in the decomposition and bioavailibilty of organic matter and increase the soil’s water retention ability. These fungal networks really “plug” the plant into the earth’s natural systems and When these fungal networks take care of your plants for you, it cuts the labor input needed for maintaining a garden.
Beneficial nematodes are the best way to organically fight and prevent insect pest problems. These are microscopic predators to the insects that munch on your garden and spoil the fruits of your labor. the nematodes attack 250+ pest insect species while leaving beneficial insects like bees, butterflies, and ladybugs alone. Team up with nematodes and you’ve got nature on your side. (Don’t forget to pick up a hose-end sprayer in the garden supplies section below)
you can buy good bugs here too! the more microbial & insect life you introduce into the garden, the more nature works with you. Beneficial insects are predators to pest insects and releasing them locally in the garden ensures your garden has an ample population present. make sure you have good habitats like flower beds, shrubs, or a wild garden around and Pest problems will be virtually non-existent.
Natural garden fertilizer
Using natural fertilizers is important to maintaining the fertility of your garden soil. Each growing season, plants take minerals from the soil. Lots of compost and organic matter helps restore some nutrients, but rarely enough to replenish the soil.
We use liquid fertilizers all season long because they’re easy to incorporate mid-season when plants really need it and they work great in containers and raised beds. Neptune’s harvest is our favorite brand and for a good reason; it’s made from pure northern Atlantic fish and seaweed and is rich in highly bio-available micronutrients. it comes highly concentrated so you dilute as needed. a gallon lasts us all year and it doesn’t expire. very dilute, it Makes a fantastic foliar spray and I’ve noticed it adds a layer of protective zyme on the leaves for added biological protection.
use this for plants that like a more acidic soil like blueberries.
Use specific nutrients to maintain the perfect soil and always ensure your plants have everything they need to thrive. Undernourished plants don’t perform well, fall victim to disease and pestilence, and end up producing a subpar harvest.

reverse osmosis filter
Because pure water is key to good health, we use this affordable reverse osmosis filter that fits easily under the kitchen sink and is easy to install. We also like this one because it’s filters are affordable and easy to replace. It produces enough clean water for most households to use and stores 5 Liters of pure RO water in a compact holding tank. This isn’t your average charcoal “filter” that attaches to the faucet and runs tap water through a charcoal pouch. Reverse osmosis water is purified by slowly being forced through several filters designed to only allow H2O to penetrate. This real purified water is key to effective herbal extraction, sourdough health, to our health and the health of our animals. purifying water at home is healthier than buying bottled water, for you and for the planet. If you currently buy bottled water for your family, this machine quickly pays for itself. Let yourself have quality water on tap.
