    What ways have you been using organic fertilizer this growing season?

  2. Robin Says:

    I guess I've been doing ok, as I've been planting Hairy vetch and Crimson clover all over the place. I seriously didn't know about lupines though (now all the more reasons to grow those pretty Flowers!) And to think my neighbor has been helping me by throwing away some things I can really use for my Garden, Even his buckets and lumber.

  3. Damon Says:

    Oh, yes, vetch gets it done, and the flowers are simply captivating!
    I scattered vetch on the outside of the lower long side of my mounded beds. That corn is far stronger than the corn in the upper part of the bed where no vetch grew.
