Homemade Organic Fertilizer

There as a great article in the June/July 2006 Mother Earth News about making your own organic fertilizer using ingredients from the feed store.

The author is Steve Solomon and he certainly knows a thing or two about growing plants. Steve was the founder of Territorial Seed in Oregon, and the author of several organic gardening books. I have also dealt with him on several email lists and find him to be knowledgeable and helpful.

It's seed ordering time!

It now lloks like I have all the seed catalogs, other than Peaceful Valley, that I am going to get for this year, and it's time to start planning out my order.

This year, I'm going to force myself to behave. I have 20 different packets of sweet and hot pepper seeds from last year that I have kept in a jar with some dessicant. So I am going to make a list of them to keep in mind while I plan for next year. It's tough to show restraint while ordering seads and dreaming of garden in the middle of winter.

For sweet peppers, I don't really need to order any, since I have more than enough, but I think I will order either a paprika or a sweet cayenne, as well as one of the sweet habanero relatives, just for the flavor.
