Curious who the manufacturer is for the Damsel’s garden fertilizer?
Near the Cottage by the Mountains, there is a friendly horse riding arena/stables, and the “output” is prodigious. Thanks to the law of supply and demand, a person can get an entire pickup truckload of high-quality compost from this place for only $5. ($15 to have it loaded. Worth it.)
Don’t gross out. This is nicely aged compost, so it’s nothing like sticking your hand in horse poo. It’s light, airy, and odorless, and what it does to our heavy garden soil is magic.
We get a load every year and spread this stuff throughout our garden with a liberal hand. It both feeds and lightens our soil so plants can grow like…weeds.
It’s plain that this type of fertilizer is MUCH cheaper than the stuff you buy in the bag at the home center. Plus, it’s **cough** natural. No yucky chemicals here. The Damsel suspects there may be something like this in your neck of the woods, too. It’s worth checking out.
