Cutting Through Fallacy And Misconception To Deliver Empowering Truths.
What are nutrient dense foods? This is the whole point of gardening for nutrition. These are foods that have less water content and more total dissolved solids. This means the dry matter will be higher. The quickest and easiest way to check produce is with a refractometer to measure brix. Then cross check your results with the brix chart.

The composition of available minerals in soil is what makes up the pattern of the soil. Here is an example. If you had woodland in Vermont and you cleared the land and tested the soil here is the pattern you would discover: critically low soil conductivity, phosphorous, and calcium. Somewhat low potassium and most trace minerals. Iron is well supplied.
After yesterday's email I was asked to explain in more detail why compost shouldn't be used. I want to clarify that I am not at all against the use of compost. Rather I am 100% for growing nutrient dense foods. Therefore I am against anything that detracts from this goal. The problem for most people is that compost has been ingrained in us as the optimum environmental response to those nasty chemicals that kill the planet and our soils. Therefore use a lot of compost and you won't need to use the nasty chemicals.
