My vision for Pick and Preserve started many years ago and came to fruition when my partner, Andrew, bought his farm, Ashe’ Spring. We live together on the farm and are in the process of creating a homesteading environment.
In its 35th year of existence, the Farming Systems Trial (FST) at Rodale Institute continues to demonstrate, through scientific research data, that organic farming is superior to conventional systems with regard to building, maintaining and replenishing the health of the soil. This is the key to regenerative agriculture as it provides the foundation for its present and future growth.
FST is America’s longest running, side-by-side comparison of organic and chemical agriculture. It was established in 1981 to study what happens to soil health and agricultural productivity when transitioning from conventional to organic agriculture. Organic agriculture practices result in higher soil organic matter (SOM) contents and, in turn, higher nutrient- and water-supplying potential to crops. Read full report!
Didn’t get enough gardening in this season? Don’t worry there is still time to grow garden-fresh vegetables and herbs this fall and winter.
Purchase transplants and seeds that will grow and flourish in the cooler fall and winter temperatures. Lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard, root vegetables, edible pansies and calendula as well as cole crops, like broccoli, are a few to consider.

"You ever eaten a Sugarloaf?" he asked. I shook my head. I was a hospice nurse and this gentleman, I’ll call him Zeb, was my patient. We’d been talking about our favorite apples, but this sounded more like a coffeecake. "What about a Sheepnose June?" he tried again. I’d never heard of it.

Create a Garden Anywhere with Straw Bales
By Melinda Myers
Add productive garden space and raise your planting bed with straw bale gardening. This technique allows gardeners to create raised bed gardens on a patio, lawn or any area with poor compacted soil. Straw bale gardening has been around for centuries, but thanks to Joel Karsten’s book “Straw Bale Gardens” it has gained new popularity.
Springtime is here again, so it’s time to visit your local garden center for new and exciting plants, shrubs and trees for your home landscape.
