To Weed or Not to Weed, That is the Question.

Well I spent most of the day weeding the carrots. Last year they were taken over by weeds, so I wanted to be sure that doesn't happen this year. Weeding is something that always needs to be done but hardly ever is. Because we do not use pesticides or herbicides there are a lot of weeds and bugs. Some bugs are good and some are bad, but when you use pesticides, of course all (good & bad) bugs are killed. Not to mention all those chemicals get on the vegetables and in the soil. So...we just put up with the weeds and bugs. Here are a few picts. from the farm.
The carrot row?

See the little carrot tops in the middle?

Ahhh, now we can see the light and grow!
