Free-Range Living

What is Free-Range Living?

'Freerange' living might perhaps be described as the individual(s) aiming to lead an 'independent' style of life, thinking and deciding for themselves, determining their own values, along with aiming to live life in a naturally self and socially responsible manner.

Into The Freerange Yonder ------

September 10, 2020 · 12 Comments

August was a month of dynamic weather effects here at the organic micro-holding (small smallholding) in the UK heartlands, sometimes causing some problems but no irrigation of crops needed unlike earlier in the year, when in both April and May there was virtually nil rainfall. It's been a lot better growing year here than the problematical one of last year, when crops were looking for quite awhile as though they'd perish. Staples such as onions and potatoes have done well, as have beetroot, celery and winter greens, although calabrese crops have been a bit patchy - it's rare to win 'em all ----

Since the end of May and with the onset of rain, grass growth has been prolific, bringing a hefty mowing workload, and as has weed growth, which if allowed to grow up a bit is then easier to get by hand, then of course contributing to the future fertility of the plot in the form of compost. Judging by the look of this year's crops the plot fertility isn't far off being about right -making and using a bit more compost has helped in this respect.

'You can never use too much compost' said the folks who were producing the most outstanding organic crops this grower's ever seen.

Some of the key 'freeranger' themes are briefly revisited and re-capped, this blog being the last in the series :

 - freerange humans       - advanced individual development     -  'power poor' individual v. 'powerful big business'

 -   a 'freeranger take' on money and materialism    -   'freeranger style individualism'   - 'the individual is important '

 -   'Individual 'fulfillment the holy grail - ?'    - 'sorting wheat from chaff -mindfulness practice'

 -   'from little acorns --benefits to the world'

Good freerangin' -----
