As we continue our 5
year transition to Organic we are Replacing most of our seeds with, seeds that are Certified Organic, Untreated,
Or Treated with Natural III.( “Natural III Treatment is a ORMI listed
biological seed treatment with the proprietary blend of beneficial
microorganisms that help protect seeds and developing roots from fungal decay.”
This is the First seed treatment I have Found to replace chemical treated
seeds.) We will also be changing some of the varieties. Last year we added some
Hot Peppers this year we are adding some Sweet Peppers.
