High Brix Farming & Gardening–the Quest for Nutrient-Dense Food
I first read this article when it was published in Wise Traditions (the quarterly publication of the Weston A. Price Foundation), and was absolutely amazed at what I learned. I found it even more wild that all of this DID interest me so much.

Trust me, it just might pull you in, too. Especially if you enjoyed my recent post with Karen Lubbers when she shared about how important our dirt is. “Dirt Matters“, she said. “Soil feeds the grass that feeds the animals that feed us.” If you're into farming or gardening, or just enjoy nutrient-dense, healthy food, you'll want to read this:
The Quest for Nutrient-Dense Food: High-Brix Farming and Gardening by Suze Fisher.

You’re much more ambitious than I am!
I was finally “ready” to read the article and, no, you’re not warped in thinking that this is cool! I found some inexpensive ones on ebay but since I don’t even have a garden yet I thought this should wait a bit. 🙂
Three things that my brain filter got out of it to use immediately for this first garden attempt: check soil pH, add trace elements, and plant a winter crop of rye grass to protect and build organic matter – hope I got that right!
But first things first, right now we need the landscape timbers and dirt to build up the garden.
