One of the places we will visit on the Biodynamic tours of our ranch on Saturday, June 23, is the orchard our son Jesse planted. Monocropping is a sure way to bring sterility to a ranch; allowing a diversity of native plants to flourish and raising a variety of crops offers food and shelter for many native beneficial insects and other animals.
These fuyu persimmons are having their first year of certified Biodynamic/organic fruit. They were planted 3 and 4 years ago.
