Keeping my garden as close to nature as possible is important to me. I don't want to put chemicals and sprays on my food so I just go all natural and hope for the best. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Right now the rhubarb and strawberries are starting to burst from the ground and I wanted to help them along a bit. I can't wait to eat fresh fruit from my own backyard. What a refershing idea.
Anyways, I found Whitney Farms® organic plant food and decided to give it a try. Using a plant food is new to me so I looked forward to seeing the changes in my garden. I took handfuls of the plant food and sprinkled it around my strawberry and rhubarb beds on May 1st.
The Rhubarb was already looking pretty good, but I figured a little bit of encouragment wouldn't hurt.
Strawberries are starting to bloom. I really want to have a good harvest of strawberries from this small patch this year. It wont produce enough for jam, but hopefully we'll have some fresh strawberry shortcake from it.
After two weeks I'm happy wtih the results of using Whitney Farms. I took the following photos on May 12th and I've seen a nice difference in plant growth:
Look!!! A bloom
please excuse the long grass/weeds in the background
I'll be planting our tomatoes soon in our brand new garden boxes using organic soil and the Tomato and Vegetable Food. Hopefully we'll have a nice crop this year.
