Jan ... good info by Vicky. I use alalfa in the form of rabbit food and apply about 1 cup per sq ft on established plants once a growing season IF N or moreorganics are called for. When prepping a bed, it depends on how much N I've already got going in with other supplements. Too much N can begin to effect the aborption-availability of minor elements.... That can make it plant dependent too. Roses love the stuff by the way.
Jan I got lucky the first book I grabbed and went to the index I found alfalfa meal for you. This is from Rodale's Garden Answers Vegetables, Fruits & Herbs At-a-Glance Solutions for Every Gardening Problem
Primary nutrient or benefit - Nitrogen & organic matter
Typical N-P-K ratio or mineral content 2.5-0.2-2.0
Average application rate per 100 square feet - low 10lbs med 6 lbs adequate 3 lbs
Comments,- quick acting. Contains triaconatol, a natural fatty-acid growth stimulant plus trace minerals.
Bob or somebody, I bought some Alfalfa meal for my gardens how much do I apply and when? does anyone here know?
Catherine, Your Radishes look good but they look like you shined them up to take their picture???
It is a great time of the year that I look forward to, even through there is allot of work.....
Your peas are way ahead of mine even tho I put them in the end of Feb. I found a couple of volunteer white icicle radishes out there this morning. I put them in the zuc last yr. and let them go to seed even saved seeds.
It didn't rain here til I got Bill's lawn mowed and cleaned their house. I am whooped, scarfing down some chow mein from Panda.
Wow! Catherine, your snap plant is up hanging...that's genious! ... no bugs can get to it. The radishes looks cute and delicious!
Sweet, crunchy, and delicious....I'll be adding these to my stir-fry dish tonight.
http://www.metacafe.com/watch/370230/monty_python_ministry_of_silly... If you go to this link, you can see the silly walk. It's the first one. With 2" of mud on the bottom and the strap disconnected, I had to fling the flip flop out in front then try to step on it to avoid having to walk barefooted in the mud. Yes, Buffet did come to mind.
I had to go back four pages to catch up on your conversation about sweet potatoes. Bob, you are so full of information. I had a sweet potato sprout last fall so I put it in a glass of water and the two vines grew to about six inches but roots never formed on the potato so I tossed it. When you said you took the "slips" and planted them made me corious. Can you expound on the process a bit? Thanks
... Muriel, what a vision!
I went straight to "... blew out my flip flop,Stepped on a pop top,Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home...."
Thank goodness for the Monty Python crew and Jimmy Buffet.
