  • If you are a regular reader of my column you likely know that I much prefer an organic approach to farm and gardening and that I believe that building healthy soil produces healthy food.

    The other day I needed to do some fertilization in the vegetable patch so I gathered up some supplies that included bags of alfalfa meal, bone meal and cottonseed meal.
