Organic Gardening

It's only January, but gardening is a year-round endeavor.  Organic gardeners must plan their gardeners carefully.  Good organic soil is a biological process that takes time and as keepers of the soil we must work with nature.  Last week a farm gal friend hauled a tank-full of cow manure to my farm.  She was on her way to pick up a couple of bulls some place else so we hurriedly unloaded the tank with my small tractor.  The load of manure was almost to heavy for my tractor.  Jess would direct me with hand gestures and I would edge the tractor up to the trailor.  Slowly, inch by inch, the tank of manure was moved until it finally dropped to the ground.  Actually, it was right in the middle of the driveway.  Using the front-end loader on the tractor, I gradually moved the tank of manure to the edge of my garden.  I sacked up goodies from my Bakery for Jess to take with her; bread and cinnamon rolls made from freshly ground organic Oklahoma wheat, jams & jellies made with my organic fruit, green beans from my garden, Hot Pickled Trio, Bread & Butter Pickles, etc.  No money exchanged hands.  You see, we used the old barter system in which one commodity is exchanged for another.  I have alot of farm connections and could find anything we might need if the need arose.  In our modern world we rely on stores to purchase what we want and need.  What if there were a natural disaster or some world event in which you couldn't do that.  Do you have the connections needed to provide for yourself and your family?  If not, you might think about how you could change that.
