Read full description of the books:
Fun reading. I gleaned several things that I want to try this gardening season, namely wide-rows. I'm going to plant one section of my garden that is newer and hasn't been built up with the organic matter we've put on the other garden area in peas, the whole area, not in rows. Then I'm going to till them in and plant green beans the same way. Those will be tilled in in the fall. Peas and beans fix nitrogen from the air into nodules around their roots. These nitrogen nodules and the copious amount of organic matter tilled in should go a long way to increasing the fertility of this area.
I also learned that pepper plants will set fruit better with these practices:
- Rip out half the matches in a book and sprinkle them around the bottom of the planting hole. Cover with two inches of soil, then plant the pepper. Matches contain sulpher which lowers soil pH slightly. Peppers like slightly acid soil and we have very alkaline soil here.
- Spray plants with Epsom salt solution, a good source of magnesium. Plants need magnesium to set fruit. Mix 1 tsp Epsom slats in a spray bottle filled with lukewarm water. Shake well and spray on leaves and blossoms when the plants first blossom and then again 10 days later.
