What is the difference between a garden and a farm anyway?
As we prepare for our big trip to Millstone Farm tomorrow, we wanted to have a discussion about what we do at Applegate Garden and how that is different from what farmers do. We talked about scale—we grow a lot less vegetables and fruits than farmers do. We talked about lifestyle—most farmers grow food as their job whereas our gardening is more of an activity that we do not depend on economically.
Then we thought about our garden and what real farmers could help us out with—could they give us advice on our tomatoes that have Blossom End Rot? Tell us how to plant potatoes? We hope so!
