If you've been reading my blog for a while,
you know I'm more of a flower gardener than a veggie gardener.
Mostly because I'm a lazy gardener.
I garden for the enjoyment of it .
And to me , veggies always seemed like work.
I love playing in the dirt.
there is a certain satisfaction that comes from picking your own tomatoes and cucumbers.
I love to take a salad somewhere and say ,
" why yes, I grew these in my garden ".
I've never really worried too much about the fertilizer I use .
Because we have farms , I tend to use a lot of poop ( composted of course )
However this year , I'm thinking I need to be a little more selective.
The reason ?
I'm not putting anything in Addie's mouth that isn't completely safe!
So when the opportunity came to write this post , I thought , I better give it a try.
Whitney Farm Organic plant soil and food is
* low to no dust
* no manure smell ( which doesn't offend me , but does some )
* easy to apply
*and is a specially designed protein-based blend that provides plants with both macro and micronutrients to help them grow and thrive.
The Man built me a new raised bed this year.
I had to twist his arm a bit ....
We filled it with free compost from the county .
They have free mulch too.
since I am using composted soil , I think I better use organic plant food.
Here are some coupons to help get you started.
I'm really hoping my garden looks like this , this year
I'm sure mine won't be quite this lovely.
But I will really try not to be as lazy this year :)
I really want to brag about my tomatoes and cucumbers ...
