Gardening Without Pesticides
Published on June 10, 2013 by Sara Foss

Over at the DG, my colleague Margaret Hartley writes about gardening and living without pesticides in her column Greenpoint.

Here's an excerpt:

"We live in a hilly place, naturally forested enough that an unmowed field will turn to brush, then pines, then mixed woods within a decade.

Where we live, you have to work hard to keep a field. My husband does some of that work, haying some of the little fields around us. That gives us some fodder for our animals and helps the neighbors keep some land from growing to forest.

This place is not considered good agricultural land, but it’s ideal for us. In fact, we moved to the Adirondack foothills on purpose to garden, just because it’s not prime for agriculture."
