Eating off the Land at Mamushi Nature Farm
Eating life-giving foods for a more abundant life
A partial autobiography is given here about my roots that are imbedded in a land, a farm valley in Middle Tennessee, in such a manned that I have become "one with the land." This land produces foods that are life-sustaining, health-promoting and "healing" in a way that gives one life, that is, "a more abundant life."
We eat, here in the "Enchanted Valley of Mamushi," the same foods that our ancestors have eaten for the last 200 years or so. I will be writing more hubs about my valley and the foods that grow here, the foods that we eat that provides us with abundant health, which translates into a more abundant life. Love grows in this valley which also translated into a more quality filled life, that is, a more abundant life.
We eat organisms that grow in our valley. Some of the plants we eat, we actually grow ourselves. Other plants that we eat are indigenous plants, plants that have been eaten by our ancestors going back for more that 200 year. For eons, or an indefinitely long period of time African slaves and descendants of African slaves have farmed in the our valley. For example, one ex-African slave, the patriarch of the Fitzgerald family, a man who was born in 1860 C.E., a year before the American Civil War started. He was a very productive farmer and two generations of his family, his descendants that is, still live in this valley that they consider home.
I am remotely kin to this family, by way of a marriage connection, and I take pride in my relationship to this family. I take great pride that I was born and raised on the site where patriarch of the Fitzgerald family once lived.
What does this have to do with foods that gives one a more abundant life, one may ask? It has a lot to do with it I proclaim. The land in the valley and the families that live in the land produce the life-giving foods in the Japanese Nature Farmed Organic gardens. Nature produce the indigenous plants, or foods, that only Nature can produce.
Now let me explain to you what makes the foods produced in the valley, called The Enchanted Valley of Mamushi, so special. We, who have stewardship for the valley, have this perfect understanding that "all of the foods produced in the valley, indigenous and non-indigenous, all is produced by Nature. We are only stewards of Nature. We know this to be true and we behave like we know that this is true. This is a powerful concept.
I have given you a very brief and broad biography of our valley and Nature farm. I have not given any details at all but information and teachings are capable of being found in this brief composition. I have written other hubs that touch upon what we do at Mamushi Nature Farm. I am a healer who uses Nature and the limited amount of knowledge that I learn at medical school and from the gifted professors that I have had at some of the best universities in the United States of America. I thank God for gifts of knowledge that I have been given. To God be the Honor, the Glory and as we go, I wish you Peace.
Whenever possible, refrain from overcooking foods.

In winter weather it is best to grow your beets, for the greens, using a "raised-bed" or a green house. My beet greens did not tolerate 18 degree F weather well. They froze. I will use a green house.
What happens to a farm in the winter? What does a farmer do? Is wintertime a time to "kick-back" take it easy and go into a vacation mode? Not really! There are animals to care for, winter crops, etc.
