I think we all know that I'm not big on chemicals in my garden. I wouldn't eat chemical fertalizers, so why would I ever put them in my food? We create an excellent compost on our own with kitchen scraps, worms, and chickens. That said, the soil where we live is aweful. Really, just pathetic, and after three years of cultivating it, there are still areas where the nutrient profiles are just off.
I have been saddened by the prospect of having to resort to chemical fertalizers to try to get our broccoli to grow properly or prevent our cabbages from bolting, but companies like Whitney Farms® give me hope. Now, to be honest, I haven't done a full battery of research on this company, but the things I do know about them certainly but them head and shoulders above chemical fertalizer companies.
Products like their organic soil and organic plant food are free of additive and artificial ingredients, and - most imortantly in my mind - contain beneficial microbes. This is essential. This is what sets these sorts of fertalizers above chemical ones. The very best possible soil for any plantlife is living soil. And Whitney Farms® will help you get just that. They even have more specifically tailored products like Tomato and Vegetable Food and Plant Food.
I mean really, with a beautiful garden like this, and, more importantly, beautiful gardners, why would I ever put chemicals down?
