I am sure many of us have read about the problems with the Romaine lettuce from Yuma and E. Coli that has been in the news for several weeks. The scientists are stumped. They cannot figure it out. I do not talk to them though because I know they would not listen to me.
So, I will blog here about growing food safely. I do it here in Yuma, AZ. I am doing it with very little resources but I am growing food safely and eating it everyday! I have no problems with the food that I grow. I eat my homegrown tomatoes on my salads all of the time. I have also grown a few sweet peppers and basil.
I use only organic fertilizer that has been properly pasteurized. It is called Espoma Organic Garden-Tone Herb and Vegetable Food. I know it is not going to cause me any harm. In fact, it is exactly what my plants need to grow healthy. There are many very good organic fertilizers available today. There is no reason why a bad fertilizer should ever be used when growing food.
Now, back to the news. No one has talked about the fertilizers being used in commercial food growing these days. It seems that they have just conveniently forgotten that whole thing. But I can surely remember the days when I smelled the manure that was being used on the fields in large quantities. Now, maybe that could be a direct source of the E. Coli problem. Manure is not a safe fertilizer at all but it is still readily available and probably very cheap these days.
I know the importance of using a safe fertilizer for growing food. I want to someday soon grow more vegetables and fruits here in Yuma when my family is intact and back together again. We know exactly what do about growing food safely. We will have a very beautiful food garden. We will not have to depend on those commercial food growers ever. I do not trust them at all.
Universe Family Healers will always grow food and stay healthy. The people of this planet need to know that growing food the safe way is the only way to live.
