Soil - The Building Block of Life - Part 3 of 6

-By Yosef Camire


Last week we left off talking about the negative-side of fertilizers and we spoke about why we don't use them. Over the last few weeks we have been building a foundation of things that we should NOT be doing and this week we continue that trend as we talk about the negative affect of tilling. Over the next few weeks we will discuss tilling, organic matter, how to make compost and more, so stay tuned. This week: Tilling.

To till or not to till? That is often not even the question (when it should be!)...and that's because people usually just go for it and do it year after year after year, without much thought! This is, to put it lightly, not the most ideal practice, yet it is repeated year after year by farmers and home-gardeners around the world. Tilling, it turns out, is not only the single largest contributor to the dust bowl, to soil degredation and to particulate matter in the air, it's also one of the largest (if not the single largest) contributor to greenhouse gas emissions world-wide!

Tilling is defined as breaking up the subsurface of the soil. This can be done by means of shovel, broad-fork, plow or roto-tiller. Regardless of the method used, turning over the soil is tilling. Tilling is the single most destructive thing that you can do to your soil โ€“ worse than pesticides!

ยท There is no natural process on earth that turns over the soil. Therefore, the organisms in

the soil have not adapted to this process. Simply put โ€“ itโ€™s not natural!

ยท Tilling dries out the soil and allows for greater amounts of evaporation (utilizing no-till

holds up to 220 times more water than tilled and reduces evaporation by 3,000%!)

ยท Increased moisture held in the soil when not tilled - reduced evaporation.

ยท Decreased run-off and pollution is associated with not tilling.

ยท No-till increases infiltration of moisture to the roots of plants particularly in the winter


ยท No-till practices decrease the need for fertilization.

ยท Decreased need to pump water and use precious resources is a result of no-till


ยท No-till practices keep the soil structure intact which reduces erosion.

ยท Increased microbial activity in soil is a result of no-till practices.

ยท Greater amount of carbon sequestration can be stored due to no-till agriculture.

ยท Increased crop yields of 21-26% is possible with not tilling!

Reflections of a Hungry Jewish Farmer on Tisha B'av

By Yosef Camire (Written July 26th, 2015)

Yesterday was Tisha B'Av, and as tradition, I like to share an article regarding this holiday that I wrote back in 2015. I hope you enjoy.

Today is Tisha B'av (Literally the 9th of the month of Av), a day of fasting, mourning and reflection for the Jewish people. Being Jewish, our family is also fasting both food and water on this day. Like a few other occupations though, like those who are in medicine, there are truly no days off for a farmer. Even days like Shabbat, when the Jewish people are to rest from ALL work, a day full of restrictions, there are still many things that absolutely must be done on the farm. Things like feeding and watering the animals never takes a day off. So, therefore, even on a day like Tisha B'Av, when we are fasting from any food or water for more than 24 hours, we do not have the luxury to at least take the day off and rest. Further more, there are deadlines that need to be made. Plants need to be watered, product needs to be harvested, and food needs to be delivered. So what did I do this morning while fasting? As soon as I was done praying, I worked in the field. I harvested the shares for tomorrow, I irrigated the vegetables, watered and fed the animals. Was I tired? A little bit. Hungry? A little bit. Reflective? Even more so...

I thought about the meaning of Tisha B'Av: The remembrance and mourning of the destruction of the Holy Temples (both the first and the second temple were destroyed, as it were, on the same calendar day), the crushing defeat of the Jews in 132 C.E. during the Bar Kochba revolt, the first crusade against the Jews in 1095, the expelling of the Jews from Spain in 1492 and the declaration of WW1 all occurred on Tisha B'Av along with a host of other destructive events. In short, Tisha B'Av is a sad day. For me as a farmer, I have an opportunity on this day, however.

As I am fasting and mourning and reflecting on the atrocities that have occurred to the Jewish people, to our people, over the centuries and I am feeling weak and hungry while working in the field, I could feel sorry for myself. But I don't. I realize instead what a privilege it is to live as free as I do and to be able to feed people with such pure and whole foods that bring healing to their bodies and to our land. While working I think of how grateful I am to be able to practice my faith openly and without apology in such a free country and during such a time as this. Sure there is anti-semitism, and I am not immune from it believe me, but comparatively, we are living in a time of immense peace and prosperity. Yet, there are so many around the world who are not.

I think of those in parts of China, India and parts of Africa that are suffering from malnutrition and hunger. I think mostly, however, of those even here in America, the most prosperous nation the world has ever seen, that are suffering from unseen starvation. Today there are 50 million Americans who are literally starving to death (Watch "A Place at the Table). These American's who can barely afford to purchase food are not all aching for food, some are, but they are starving (Read Stuffed and Starved). Stuffing themselves on foods laden with refined carbohydrates like high fructose corn syrup, added refined sugars, stripped of all nutrients like white bread and white rice, these people are literally starving of nutritional deficiency to death. Some of them don't even realize that they are starving, as they make the choices to eat this way while suffering ailments that doctors tell them are "hereditary," while giving them a prescription for statins to lower their cholesterol. Others, however, wish they could eat healthier. They long for pure, clean, fresh food, but cannot afford it, or it's simply not accessible to them (See Food Desert).

This is where we come in. Colorado Springs and El Paso county as well as other areas in southern and eastern Colorado are some of the areas that many people are suffering. Only 1-2% of the food in El Paso county is considered local and a huge percentage of the area including much of the rest of Colorado outside of Denver and a few exceptions are considered to have low availability to fresh food (see USDA Map Here). Even if they do have access to fresh food the question then is first, can they afford it, and second, is it really pure, healthy food that is going to bring healing, or is it conventional food that will further damage their bodies because it is laden with chemicals and modified organisms that are not recognizable or digestible by the human body (see a great video about this HERE)? The reality is, however, that even with an additional 100,000 acres of pure food, it still wouldn't meet the local demand. But we can make a small difference. Our little farm is responsible for feeding about 30 families per week pure food. We bring healing to a small amount of additional people with those that purchase our food from the farmers market as well. It's not much, but it's a start. We have been told by so many, how the food makes them feel, how much they enjoy it and even more so, how thankful they are that we are here to provide it for them. What a blessing!

With so many people that are starving each and every day, I choose to be hungry for one day with them. I am hungry and I am tired and I am sad because of Tisha B'Av, but I am also thankful. I am thankful that my family is so healthy. I am thankful that my family is safe and does not have to worry about being expelled, murdered, or persecuted to such an extent as those who have gone before us have been. I am also thankful for the opportunity to provide food and bring healing to people who otherwise do not have access to it.

Fasting brings a reflection that encourages appreciation for the things that we have. To go without food for one day is no problem, even if I am working hard for much of that day. For, there are almost a billion people around the world right now who do not have food (see HERE). I am making a choice not to eat. They don't have one. How dare I complain, whine, snivel or pout about not eating for one day, for running after children or working hard in the field? I can't. I must, therefore be grateful for the opportunities that I have. For the opportunity to have a choice not to eat for a day, for the opportunity to provide health and financial well-being for my family and for the opportunity to bring health to others through the food that I grow.

This Week's Harvest

As always, nothing is guaranteed. These are the items that are "in season" and are anticipated to be ready this week (which may or may not be available at the CSA).

  • Small = 4-6 items per week

  • Medium = 7-9 items per week

  • Large = 10-12 items per week

    1. Redbor Kale and Darkibor Kale - Some of the most amazing kale you have ever seen or tasted! Taste is NOTHING like in the store - those that know, know! Try some this week, massage is real good, follow one of THESE recipes and let your tastebuds have a party!

    2. Carrots - Oh sweet and amazing carrots, you are so beautiful this week!

    3. Radishes - beautiful radishes. Stunning in color, crisp and juicy without too much spice. Harvested young and small in the summer.

    4. Scallions - Who doesn't love scallions!? Did you know that if you leave the roots on and stick it in a glass of water the scallions will re-grow for a second cut!? It's true - try it!

    5. Garlic - An heirloom hardneck variety, from our own stock, it is potent and amazing garlic! Ready to store if you aren't ready to eat it. The bulbs are small, but still delicious! 2 Small bulbs per serving.

    6. Beets - In the words of Dwight Schrute "Beets are best!" yes, we think so! One of our absolute staples in our family are beets. Beets are on nearly every Shabbat table in the form of a beet salad: Roasted beets, de-skinned, lemon juice, parsley and salt - served cold. Yum! Don't like that idea? Try these!

    7. Celeriac Greens - Similar to celery, but more bitter. Celeriac is great in stews and in cooked dishes or other places where you would like to substitute celery.

    8. Fennel - Fennel is one of our favorites! Don't forget to use those fronds - eat them now, or dry them and save them - but don't waste them! :) Here are some ideas.

    9. Parsley - Parsley is one of my (Yosef) favorites! Who doesn't like parsley!? Ready to eat raw or hang and dry to save for later. Need some recipe ideas? GO HERE.

    10. Kohlrabi - Gorgeous bulbs with tasty leaves! We love kohlrabi raw with lemon and salt, but it's fairly versatile. Don't forget to eat those amazing greens and click here for some more ideas.

    11. Hakurei Sweet Turnips - The absolute best turnips on the planet - they are SO sweet and delicious, kids eat them like apples and they are extraordinarily versatile. Definitely a CSA staple and favorite for so many!

    12. Tomatoes - So many tomatoes! We have red ones, yellow ones, green ones, purple ones and orange ones! They are SOOOOOOOOOO good! Expect a lot of these throughout the summer!

    13. Summer Squash - Fully in now, we have scalloped squash, zucchini squash, romanesco squash and so much more. Try them all, they are all unique and are all delicious! Our favorite and easiest way to eat it all summer long is by grilling it!

    14. Swiss Chard - One of my absolute favorite greens to saute' and wilt deeply. I love garlic, oil and salt and taking this amazingness and adding it to a bed of rice or quinoa and adding in different vegetables, some tofu (or meat) and then we love an asian peanut-based dressing and it's to die for.

    15. Salad Mix lettuce- A beautiful and soft/fluffy salad mix (with some arugula and flowers mixed in - YUM!). perfect for a salad base or even a bed of rice etc.

    16. Cucumbers - Two kinds of cucumbers: Pickling and tendergreen. Our favorite? The tendergreen, but they are all delicious!

    17. Plants - There will be plenty of plants to choose as an item this week, even some garden varieties. Enjoy!

    18. Living Herbs - We have basil, chamomile, mint and a lot more!

    19. Red Russian Kale - Baby kale is always so tender! Sautรฉ' it, eat it raw, add it to stews...there so much to do. Here are some ideas.

    20. Garlic - Our garlic is harvested and ready! We are so excited for garlic season, but unfortunately, much of our garlic turned out smaller than we had hoped due to an "oopsie" while growing. BUT, it's still absolutely delicious garlic (the largest ones we will keep for seed come Fall)!

    21. Dried Herbs - Basil, dill, mint and fennel (our herb room smells like heaven!๐Ÿ˜‡).

    22. Radish Microgreens - Next to the barley grass and the sunshoots, radish microgreens are some of the most nutritiously-dense items we grow on the farm and not only that, but during our annual survey last year, they ranked as the #1 most requested and love item we grow! They have a fantastic bite to them, last considerably long in the refrigerator and are beautiful in appearance.

    23. Kohlrabi Greens - Stalk and all, these amazing greens are delicious! I love to eat them similar to collards, or broccoli greens, sautรฉed in butter with some garlic and salt, but they have a unique flavor that is very nice! Absolutely delicious greens!

    24. Pea Shoots - One of the most desired and sought after items we provide are these pea shoots! Quite literally the best you added to any dish or salad. Our favorite way is to add them to stews and soups. A perfect topper too! Here are four fun ways to use Pea Shoots:

    25. Broccoli Microgreens - Last week we told you that Radish Microgreens were the #1 most loved item we grow, well, these microgreens weren't on the list then! I have a sneaking suspicion that these microgreens are the real winners!
