Hi Robin-
I thought I had listed a response to your comment..I think one of the most important things is the building of healhty soil. I really hadn't paid to much mind to this until my husband, who is a soil scientist pointed out that without the correct nutrients in our soils, we can eat all the good food we want, but if it lacking the nutritional value, it is not doing us much good. Those who are growing organicaly are really keyed into this part of the equation.
