Out here on the frontier, it was another beautiful, but dangerous day. We repelled an attack by the Monsantonites when Seed Saver and Baker Creek came to the rescue with their heirloom, non-GMO guaranteed seed. It was a heroic effort but Carolyn got them in the ground just in time to save the seed from Monsanto’s poison and with the cold frame keeping them warm we expect to see amaranth, peas, cabbage, cukes, spinach and lettuce poking their little heads out of the ground in a matter of days. Still, with the Monsantonites and their GMO army lurking behind every dream of planting a row of healthy, home grown organic food, surely some of these plants will never grow to have a deep voice. Ambushes are as common as bean bushes and this week’s Congressional action proves none of us are safe unless we provide for ourselves. Of course feeding yourself and being self-reliant are the risks we accept when living a life that is the antithesis of what Govt. and Big Ag. desire.
To quote Queen Elizabeth, “The world is not the most pleasant place. Eventually your parents leave you and no one is going to go out of their way to protect you unconditionally. You need to learn to stand up for yourself and what you believe and sometimes, pardon my language, kick some arse.” Interesting quote from the Queenie babe, eh, especially when considering what it took for our nation to stand up for ourselves and kick some arse to free ourselves from the Queens rule!
Returning to the back forty, while we were busy fighting off Monsanto’s destructive influence our young apricot was popping off with a 99 bud salute. The 70 degree weather has all sorts of things popping out. Our baby chicks were moved out of the garage to an outside pen yesterday, far from Monsanto’s caustic influence. No corn in those little birdies feed and for that matter none in the big girls feed either!
Our battle for healthy food was furthered today with the planting of a new apple tree, and a big boy he is. Might possibly get a few apples from him this year if the weather is right. That makes a total of 16 fruits trees around the place, which is a bit comical in itself. I like to think of it as a small orchard, but when you have an orchard you don’t count your trees, so an orchard it’s not, but fresh organic fruit it truly is! As the bible says, “He who tends the fig tree will eat its fruit, and he who cares for his master will be honored.” PROVERBS 27:18
We do both to the best of our ability out here on the edge of society, far from the sheeple and zombies, and the devil and Monsanto are kept far from our gardens gates too!
