We just got back from attending the California Small Farm Conference in Sonoma County! We wanted to first thank the conference for giving us both a scholarship so that we could attend. We learned so much that we are anxiously applying to our farm practices already. We are going to start adding Hedge Rows to our farm to attract parasitic insects that will take care of eating all the harmful bugs we get that attack our vegetables. We are also going to start placing compost on the top of our rows and plant our transplants right into it - this will hopefully cut down on the amount of weeds that may pop up, and give the soil a bunch of nutrients. We are also thinking of trying to grow some grains next year - just experimental, but you never know where it might take us. Here is the link to the California Small Farm Conference, in case you are interested in checking it out.
