Organic Fertilizer Recipe

The following "recipe" is for the organic fertilizer mix we will be using this season, along with some aged horse manure.

4 parts soy bean meal
1 part bone meal
1/2 part garden lime
1/4 part gypsum

If the weather cooperates with us, we hope to be in the field this coming weekend, amending the soil and planting our first spring crops! We'll be starting with lettuce, spinach, carrot, radish, beets, peas and onions. We'll also be working on the beginnings of our asparagus patch. I can't wait to get out there! Pictures will be coming soon of our finished fence too.

*(I should add that this recipe calls for 1/4 part dolomite also, but we have not been able to find it in our area.)
