Since man's darkest days, the deepest shadows have held fear. Those who are steel of heart seek out and face these shadows. Those who are rougher still lead others to do the same. Here are the tales told by those hardy souls. Here are the tales of the Explosiventure Trading Company.

Because this needs more notes.
Sweet corn, grown with no pesticides or herbicides. My field is never tilled. I cover it with horse manure compost every fall, and I cover that with straw. When I weed it by hand, the weeds are left to decompose right in place as a mulch. Squash and beans grow alongside the corn, and everything is planted by hand.
It can be done. We don’t need Monsanto. We need human labor right there, side by side with the plants. We don’t need massive petroleum powered agriculture, we need people working small horticultural plots, gaining knowledge of their specific land and it’s needs. Our land needs to be enclosed by wild space, fecund and full of birds, and bats, and insects, and snakes, and turtles, and all of the other beings that make an ecosystem function.
We can make a desert of the earth in an attempt to get high yields of low quality crops so a few corporations can temporarily get great financial returns, or we can have people spend their days bringing their food into existence, getting in touch with their bio regions, and building healthy soil and ecosystems for generations to come.
It can be done.

Drinking mead and making shit with knives and hammers tonight. When people ask what I do for a living I’m going to start telling them I’m a fucking viking.
