Seeking Ag Blogs

What are the good sustainable agriculture blogs?

Since interning at Greenmarket this summer, I've become very interested in sustainable agriculture. I don't want blogs about cooking or the politics of sustainability, I'm looking for blogs or other updated websites about the mechanics and techniques involved in this sort of farming, both in regard to plants and livestock.

Not sure if this is what you're interested in, but the Sustainable Table blog is really good and also has a good blogroll.

There's also a directory of sustainable agriculture blogs here.

One other thing - you might find some good blogs by googling for permaculture sites, which tend to be all about the mechanics and techniques (some call it regenerative instead of sustainable, making the point that sustainable is not enough).

Small scale, but wonderful:

A family in Pasadena who have turned their suburban home into a self-sustaining environment which keeps their family comfortably fed. I know it's small-fry, but they know a lot about the various challenges, and have solved a lot of problems to get to the happy place they are.

I read their blog, and emailed and asked if I could visit - they were happy to show me around for an exchange of a few household tools (they trade a lot). Such a beautiful place, and the air quality was markedly different around their home - fragrant and clean.
