I took advantage of the sunshine when it finally came out yesterday afternoon and tried to do a little work in the garden. I borrowed DH's fishing/hunting seat pad (the kind that stays warm!) and managed to get some weeding done in my strawberry plots and the flower areas. I still have a long way to go, and I hope there's some nice weather coming up so I can get cracking on it - or my garden is going to look very empty!
I do have my batch of compost ready to go, but I still need DH to build another raised bed for me. I'm not sure if I'll do any better this year with my vegetable growing, but I'll continue to keep trying. As you know, I prefer to do things as naturally and organically as possible these days. I hadn't heard of Whitney Farms®, but they are a full line of 100% natural plant foods and soils with no additives and nothing artificial. They actually have 25+ years of leading gardening experience, so I'm pretty sure they know what they are doing compared to me! lol They have improved their products so they are low to no dust, with no manure odor - I lived on a farm for my childhood, trust me when I say I can skip that smell. (I'd rather the smell of fresh hay, personally!)
I'm definitely going to need to find some organic soil to top off my raised bed before I can plant. Now I've used another brand of organic plant food, and it helped save my seedlings a few years ago when they started to wilt. I'd far rather use organic than conventional, but sometimes it's a matter of cost, especially these days - so I was happy to see that Whitney Farms put out a $3 coupon to help me save a little money!
I'm really hoping to do some serious canning this summer, and if Whitney Farms® can help me achieve nicer looking tomatoes with loading up on crummy chemicals, I'll definitely give it a try!
Have you tried out Whitney Farms® before? What did you think? And are you expanding your garden this year?
