Conclusion: Trust Nature’s Balance
No one will ever argue with you that nature has its own way to bring things back to balance. By utilizing the existing resources in nature and a little though, one will often find the solution.
It continues to baffle me how human choose to stray away from this balance. The perfect example is seen in our food system where food and fecal matters are transported to and away from centralized cattle barns; whereas in nature cows graze freely and re-fertilizes the land, zero emission.
That is a conversation for another post, for now enjoy your organic home made pesticides and I wish you vigorous growth and healthy plants.
