Natural and Organic Food News from New Terra Farm

This blog is my mini-journal about goings-on at the farm, and occasionally items of interest from the comic soap opera I refer to as 'my life'.

You will find info, facts and the occasional rant about natural and organic food, organic farming, the organic industry, making a living in the country, the strange doings of politicians and other aliens, all brought to you by the friendly farmers at New Terra Farm.

---------------May 2020 farm update----------------

New Terra Farm has a new venture this season;  we are preparing to launch our legal cannabis start-up, TNT-Buds. We were medical growers for a number of years, the herb helped Suzie tremendously with arthritic pain.

One consequence of this is, I've slashed the price on my Complete Start Farming Pack. Get a great deal, on a great deal of practical farming knowledge. Save over 60%.

Hundreds of people have bought my books, I really appreciate your support. Funds from book sales are going to help us contribute to the legal cannabis market in Canada, which I think is a worthwhile and needed thing.

Happy Growing, Scott & Suzie

I'm fed up with it

Wow another hate hoax! Bubba Dipsh*t just like Jussie Dumbf*k, from their positions of wealth and privilege, couldn't WAIT to jump on TV and proclaim their victim-hood.

Of course that race-baiting, click-baiting POS Don Lemmon was more than happy to pour fool on the fire.

Natives in Canada got a raw deal, and are still getting the shaft. But (with one or two notable exceptions) they are making their case for reconciliation through the courts, not through chaos.

They have my utmost sympathy and support, to the point that when things do get a little 'fractious', eg. rail blockade earlier this year, in which no one was hurt - me and a lot of other Canadians cut them a lot of slack.

Notably, they aren't burning down their own businesses and communities; they aren't alienating potential allies by rioting like PCP-addled macaques.

NOT a racial slur by the way for you virtue-signalling idiots out there. At least half the marching morons I saw pulling down statues were white.

Black Lives Matter? To whom, exactly? To the Mayor, DA, Chief of Police, and Governor responsible for shoot-em-up Chicago? When are we gonna see the aging whores, pimps and pedophiles from Hollywood protesting that?

I'm north of the border, so you might think this is none of my business. Unfortunately time and again it's been shown that dumb ideas drift north.

Lately the Canadian Press and all the politicos have been tripping over themselves to declare how earnestly, deeply, and gosh-darnit heart-wrenchingly they Care About Black People.

I'm being told by these apparently-sober Notable People that Canada suffers from 'systemic racism', unconscious bias, micro-aggressions, and a whole host of other fact-free, evidence-free maladies.

The Green Party of Ontario recently sent me this:

" The suggestion that Canada is somehow different or immune does a disservice to the Black, Brown and Indigenous Canadians who know what racism feels like every day.

We too have a legacy of colonialism, oppression, exploitation, and even slavery.

We too have systems that are are steeped in racism and discrimination and built on the false idea of white supremacy".

If I was Native, I'd be pissed; where was all this Deep Caring (TM) a decade or so ago, for Native communities deprived of basic necessities and riven by poverty and drug and alcohol abuse?

I'm against civil violence and all in favour of civil disobedience, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Mohawk Warriors toppled a statue or two just to get the spotlight.
