Bugs and weeds are free!

In some ways gardening in March and April are the easiest, because of the absence of pests and low weed pressure. At this time of year, both of these elements begin their effort to reclaim what was once their fields. We gently try to remind them that we're using this soil for the time being. They remind us that it's theirs. Repeat.
We do our best to keep weeds and insects out of our produce, but because we grow organically, we never use anything that would kill them. We inspect and sort everything that we sell, but there's always a chance that something or 'someone' might get through. When you think about it, the really scary thing is produce that never has holes, bugs or weeds in it!
