Out with the old and in with the new! It’s that time of the year when the gym fills up and diet foods are on sale. This year I resolve to provide healthy choices for my personal temple as well as my personal space.
Often in a hurry, it’s easy to reach for some pre-packaged processed food even though it’s not the most healthful. In my yard, I can do the same. I can purchase a synthetic fertilizer and sprinkle or spray it about, or I can create my own organic additive.
This growing season, I will only use compost to enrich the soil of my yard. I will do so after a heavy rain and not before, so I do not create nutrient run-off.
I pledge to not add to the growing problem of algae blooms caused in part by phosphorus containing fertilizers.
I want to play in local lakes and rivers!
I will create and use compost! Check out five ways to use compost. Compost not only improves clay soil’s fertility but also structure and texture. I will apply yearly by scattering it on the surface of my garden while working or watering it into my soil. For my grassy lawn, I will sprinkle compost throughout the year.
