FYI, there is a vegan soil treatment called "Down to Earth Vegan Mix (3-2-2)" for gardening. It contains soybean meal, alfalfa meal, soft rock phosphate, lanbenite, kelp meal, greensand, and ground basalt stonemeal. No animal products.
Seeds of Change carries it, and it is $13 for a 6 lb. box.
Think Spring! (For us Northern Hemispherites)
Thanks Sparkle_J. We hope to get a garden growing this year... right now our yard is just some really ugly grass weeds. The existing boarders left by the previous owner are all overgrown and sad. Now that the boys are older, and I don't have to worry about them running away on me, they might actually enjoy getting in the dirt!! Lil' P was so excited when he saw the tulips starting to pop out of the planter... he remembers putting the bulbs in last September while his brother slept in the truck (I don't remember, but he does LOL)
I will pass your link on to my vegan B-I-L gardener!!
How are you btw.... I haven't 'seen' you 'round here in ages!!!
speaking of gardens, i was thinking about trying my thumbs at one (they are not green thumbs) this spring. my backyard is overgrown with weeds so i would have to dig out a garden, but i'm at a loss for doing it right. i've made gardens with my camp kids before and they were okay, but do you gardners have any tips or good webpages to visit? i've looked around and really need some gardening 101 kinda info, esp. in regards to preparing the soil and not killin' things ::)
Is there anything wrong with using back to earth? I thought it was just cottonseed burr. That's what I always use anyway.
does any1 know how good chamomile and peppermint are for indoor garden? i got the seeds and want to plant them so i can make tea with them (mainly the chamomile) but want to make sure before i do anything.
i grow herbs indoors with success in the past. just don't put them in a window that is full on sun and make sure they stay watered
