Dumping the Bag – Garden Fertility Without Purchased Inputs

Fertility inputs need not be from a bag! We’ll reduce your reliance on purchased fertilizers by exploring other sources: cover crops – using and managing with or without machinery; natural mulches in and out of season; simple composting; and home sources of some minerals. Soil tests 8 years apart will illustrate results of several fertility schemes.
