Composting 101 & Potatoes 102
Harvest and Create Compost 101
We will harvest last years compost and use it to enrich this years garden beds. We will create a new pile of compost. Please bring compostable materials if you have them, especially greens. An easy way to keep greens thru the winter is in a bag in the freezer.
The class is hands-on, bring gloves, materials to compost, and dress to get dirty!
The snow last weekend let us plant potatoes in containers. Weather permitting, we will plant them in the ground this Sat 4/20/19 at 10 am.
NOTE: Citrus 2019
We were unable to get citrus from the last grower mentioned. We have found a houseplant grower that does supply citrus and we will get you an up to date list. Thanks for your patience.
Get a jump start on weeds as you are prepping your soil and planting your first crops. We carry both horticultural vinegar and citrus oil based herbicides.
Green Gobbler Omri-Listed 20% Horticulture Vinegar Weed Killer
Green Gobbler’s 20% OMRI-Listed Vinegar Herbicide/Weed Killer is a non-selective bio herbicide that packs a punch. Use it to kill all types of weeds, including dandelions, crabgrass and other annual and perennial weeds. Our vinegar is certified for organic use by OMRI, because it is derived directly from corn. It contains no harmful chemicals and degrades promptly in the soil.
Omri-Listed Avenger Weed Killer
Avenger Weed Killer is a non-selective, post-emergent organic herbicide that safely kills weeds, grasses and broadleaves. Unlike other organic herbicides that just burn foliage, the active ingredient in Avenger, d-limonene (citrus oil), naturally strips away the waxy plant cuticle causing dehydration and plant death. University and independent testing results prove that Avenger® Weed Killer is as effective yet even faster acting when compared to the leading synthetic herbicides.
We are continuing to maintain our soil pH, add organic matter, and living organisms when planting and transplanting.
Back To Earth Acidified Composted Cotton Burrs
Back To Earth Acidified Composted Cotton Burrs is an ideal general-purpose mulch for amending clay or sandy soils. This product is available with elemental sulfur to help neutralize high pH soils. Soils low in organic matter and humus or with poor tilth and structure cannot be rejuvenated with chemical fertilizers. Back To Earth compost can quickly start improvement of such soils, since it begins to function immediately, restoring vital organic matter and humus to soils, regardless of soil conditions.
Black Gold Soil Conditioner
When it comes to buying a garden amendment, product quality is the name of the game. And the key to product quality is the choice of raw materials used to make the garden amendment. Take the popular Black Gold® Soil Conditioner; it is manufactured using only the highest quality raw ingredients. The product may include a combination of these raw materials: aged/composted bark, Canadian sphagnum peat moss, compost, bat guano, earthworm castings and a proprietary blend of mycorrhizae.
