    Default close to getting the garden prepped.

    last few years I haven't been able to purchase 10-10-10 fertilizer and my garden has done zip since. every time I asked a store,"thats the stuff they make bombs out of and said they cant get it. " now everybody has 10-10-10 and im going to go ahead and get a bag. the way it draws moisture I always waited until I needed it. lord, after last years I been putting all table scraps and burning all paper only on it and spreading the ashes. I sure hope it grows this year a good crop cause im getting to sick to bust my buns tilling and hoseing not to, any ideal to help out there?

    Lime and green sand. Put the lime as deep as you can so it leaches. Or at least do it at the end of the season.
    I also buy composted cow manure. Depends on the size of the garden.

    Green sand is full of nutrients my friend. Moderation tho.
    Lime I used in early spring at the bottom of each hole.
    The lime will neutralize the last year's fertilizer so the new year's feed doesn't burn plants.
    The other thing is to rotate crops. Sorry bout the spelling. Can't half way see sir.
