    Hi John,

    Great? Channel. Just made my run to Le Ballisters today. I know you recommend 1lb of Azomite per sq foot. What is your recommendation for the Kelp Meal? Thanks

    I read a good book recently called the Four-Season Harvest, by Eliot Coleman. He recommends only digging in compost in the top two inches of soil. He does not dig it in deeply, maintaining the soil structure. I am going to adopt this practice instead of tilling six inches deep in the spring. The only time to till deep is when you are starting a new garden, but? do it only once. Eliot explains further in the book. Good luck!

    I love your informational videos. I do have a question. One of the professors on one of the videos said to never dig the soil, just keep hilling on compost, grass clippings and any kind of organic material. I always dig these into my raised beds. ? Which is better-to dig or not to dig?

    Did you ever find anywhere in Arkansas that you could purchase this? I live in Little Rock and? haven’t been able to find it anywhere. I know you can buy it online but it costs around $35 just to ship it. That’s double the price of the product! Just curious if you found it around here anywhere.

    You can use unfinished? compost for your worm bin. All you need to do is take the compost and add a layer of worm castings – which contain enough worms and worm eggs.

    all you need is 3 things: blood meal (nitrogen), bone meal (phosphoras) and azomite/kelp meal (trace elements).
    for those of you that want to save money (free) use human urine/hair/feathers? (high nitrogen) and wood ash (phosphoras and potassium)

    Dude, I got the organic growing bug last spring; it’s the greatest thing to watch and? see what you grow and know that it will nutritionally sustain you. Your show’s rock–keep them coming!

    Granular is the powder that has been steamed to make little granules,? so the application is easier, and should disolve in water. To test, put some in a cup and then add water to see it disolve into powder.

    To much calcium locks out Mg. If anything, Ca? is ok against ph drop.

    Im not a fan. Osmocote is distributed by Scotts who also? distributes RoundUp. We need to get out of the mentality of “fertilizer” which provides nutrients for a short peroid of time and (then you need to purchase more) to SOIL FERTILITY where the soil continues to build fertility and build its own nutrition, with cover crops, compost, earthworms, etc. Add lots of compost and organic matter and animal manures.

  • jlhappytoes 5 years ago

    how about osmocote? what is your view? about it.
