Fertilized the New Large Garden

Gardening

3/12/2019 – The soil test says it needs 120#-0-120# per acre. As the garden is about 1/3 acre it needs 40#-0-40#. So, a 15-0-15 fertilizer means:

15% of 50 lbs is 7.5# per bag. So, 40/7.5=6 bags.

Bought six 50 lb. bags of 15-0-15 plus iron at Agri Afc on Dawes Rd. Spread five bags with the yard spreader pushing it through the soft dirt. Got to get a better way.

Disked it in and we are ready to hill and plant.
