Sunflowers prepare Barrington Hills farm for organic future

Barrington Hills with the help of his John Deere tractor. The seeds will have a variety of uses, including for bird feed. - Mark Welsh Staff PhotographerGrollemond was a quick convert to recognizing it as a healthier way of farming."It's more complicated than most people realize," he said. "You don't get a big yield and you're always fighting weeds."And organic farms don't use genetically modified seeds that are lethal to insects, both helpful and harmful, he said.On Wednesday, he knew he saw a lot more bees pollinating the sunflowers than occurs with conventionally farmed crops.While organic farming makes large-scale cultivation less efficient, growing demand among consumers has opened new opportunities for smaller operators."It's becoming more and more popular because smaller farmers are recognizing it as a way to make money," Grollemond said.For example, Dawn Davis, who is on the board of Brookfield Zoo, said she's in early talks to provide organic foods for some of the animals there.But as much experience as Grollemond already has in organic farming, this was his first year raising sunflowers."They're pretty easy to grow," he said. "Easier than I thought they would be."In addition to their striking color and size, young sunflowers are heliotropic -- meaning they turn to face the sun as they mature.While larger fields exist in the western United States, Barrington Hills Farm's are now the largest in the Midwest, J.R. Davis said.Once this year's crop has been harvested in October for its seeds -- used for everything from bird feed and snacks to cooking oil and medicinal purposes -- the growing season will end with planting clover and radishes to further improve the soil.J.R. Davis said he knows what crops will be grown once Barrington Hills Farm is certified organic, but he can't yet reveal it.In preparing the fields for that future, there was one more reason sunflowers were the perfect choice this year: "I've always loved sunflowers," Dawn Davis said with a laugh. #article_video {width:100%;margin:25px 0;max-width:576px;overflow:hidden;} ...

As the Queen looked at the flowers, hostility melted and the crowd began to applaud. It was a turning point ...

King Charles I in the palace. ‘I saw Diana clear as day. This proves she is a saint,’ one woman tells reporters.In Westminster Abbey, eight Welsh Guards are rehearsing carrying Diana’s coffin by walking up and down the aisle with a 700lb dummy coffin with a kerbstone inside. Their metal studded boots are slipping on the stone floor and their shoulders have been rubbed raw.10.55amA fleet of cars pulls away from Balmoral as Prince Charles and William and Harry depart for London. The Queen, Prince Philip and the Queen Mother will leave shortly.12.10pmThe three Princes board the royal flight at Aberdeen Airport bound for London. Normally they are forbidden to travel on the same plane, but the Queen has granted them special permission.Souvenir suppliers are reporting that they have been inundated with requests for more stock since the news of Diana’s death. ‘It’s causing us a moral dilemma,’ said a spokesman for Royal Mint Ltd. ‘We simply don’t wish to profit from someone’s death. We are toying with the idea of making donations to the charity established in her name.’K H Bailey and Sons of Stoke is thinking of producing a transfer of Diana’s image to be used on plates and mugs. ‘If we do it we will give a portion of the profits to charity and we will encourage our customers to do likewise,’ says David Bailey, managing director. The mugs are expected to be in the shops in three weeks’ time.1.17pmThe plane carrying Prince Charles and his sons touches down at RAF Northolt, five days after Diana’s coffin arrived at the airbase.2pmCharles Spencer is being driven from Althorp to Westminster Abbey to carry out what he’s been told is ‘a microphone check’ as part of the funeral rehearsals.

Love, kindness should extend beyond Valentine's

February 14 to be St. Valentine’s Day.” Valentine’s customs vary but focus mostly on written words, flowers and sweets in multiple combinations. The Welsh carve intricate love spoons (a custom still carried out today). Victorians constructed delicate paper-art cards and pictures for their sweethearts and played intricate parlor games to divine whom they would marry. For example, an unbroken apple peel was placed in the fireplace where it would form the initial of the seeker’s future love. Such games have fallen out of fashion in our modern, commercialized society, but we still need to feel the love. Valentine’s Day has suffered like many other traditions from commercialism; stores stock candy, cards and gifts as soon as, and sometimes before, the Christmas decorations have been cleared from the shelves. Red hearts bloom everywhere along with little Cupids shooting their arrows into unsuspecting lovers ready to soften hearts and wallets. Sadly, our whole country is in need of a little love. But how? What about a little forgiveness for the hurt words and anger being hurled across the political fence? How about finding ways to spread a little love to someone or some group in your community that you might feel undeserving of loving attention? There is a well-known Buddhist meditation that focuses on loving kindness. I was taught this many years ago by a spiritual teacher in the United Kingdom. It seems simple but can be difficult to carry out. The meditation starts with quieting the mind and feeling love for yourself, then extending out those feelings of love to acquaintances, to family and friends, to loved ones and eventually to your enemies. The Buddhist mantra that we are all one has never been more needed. I received the following via a Facebook friend, and I liked her words. She wrote: “I hope your next publication will educate people to use the loving kindness in our hearts and to send out that love around the world. … It’s a powerful thing as we are truly connected, and the more that people focus on peace in our hearts w...

2016 NBG plant sale focuses on pollinator-friendly offerings

May, the biggest of which, around here is held by the Norfolk Botanical Garden. Last year’s plant sale was the most successful ever, said Kelly Welsh, the garden’s communications director. This year’s event is May 6-8. The focus is on natives favored by pollinators, particularly birds, bees and butterflies. “Today’s gardeners have an ever-increasing responsibility to consider not only the aesthetic value of the plants they choose for their gardens, but to also consider the benefits those plants will contribute to area wildlife, especially birds and pollinator insects such as bees and butterflies,” Horticulture Director Brian O’Neill said in his introduction to his top picks for the sale. “Natural areas that support wildlife have become so fragmented by man’s activities that birds and pollinator insects need all the help they can get.” Here is a condensed version of O’Neill’s 50 faves that will be available among the hundreds of offerings. Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) include the pink species and the white cultivar “Ice Ballet.” Rabbiteye blueberries (Vaccinium ashei) are well adapted to our hot and humid summers. Their spring flowers feed native pollinators, their delicious summer fruit is high in antioxidants and is beloved by ou... (Virginian-Pilot)
