ACRES USA lectures
and I were looking forward to expanding our horizons at the ACRES USA
winter, but after attending the pre-conference, we were quickly citied out
and fled back to the farm. The
good news is that ACRES has a policy of giving you half your conference
fee as a credit at their store if you're unable to attend, which was
enough to purchase a "free" audio version of the entire conference to
enjoy at our leisure!
I love to read, but have
a harder time buckling down to listen to audio, so I didn't crack the
first mp3 file until chicken waterer orders started to heat up in
March. Since then, I've been listening to one or two lectures per
week as I build do it yourself kits, skipping over the less interesting
topics but finding lots of intriguing information in others.
This week's lunchtime series
is a summary of the first four of those interesting lectures ---
biodynamics, cover crops, plant secondary metabolites, and brix.
I found some lectures a bit kooky, just as Roland suspected, but there
was at least a bit of tantalizing information in each. Stay tuned
for those tidbits at noon all week, and then for more summaries
throughout the spring and summer.
(As a side note, these
photos are totally irrelevant to the lunchtime series. I'm
enjoying how beautiful the kale is as
it starts to go to seed.)
