- I agree worm castings are great I also use a muanre tea it makes a lighter fertilizer that your plants can utilize quickly and you can use almost any kind of muanre even green muanre. Put a shovel full into a burlap bag and drop it in a trash can. then fill the can with water. I use a plastic coffee can to dip it into my watering can if it looks too dark (depending on the kind of muanre you use) you can fill the watering can half way and cut it again with water. Do this every week or so depending on how close to harvest you are (tapering off nearer to harvest time) Was this answer helpful?

Cherry Tomatoes, Carrots and Flowers
- Last year my 8 year old granddaughter indicated she would like to have a garden but no place to have one where she lived. That's all it took. I made an 4' X 8' raised bed garden plot. This project got me out of the house, and with the help of my oxygen we have we have a garden. She told me what she would like to grow and we went or it. Her favorite, cherry tomatoes, did great as well as the carrots. Everyday I look forward to checking the crops. Her interests has helped her 69 year old grandpa get outside and hopefully above ground for quite some time. Oh, we also have some flowers around the place.

- Since not only do I have to deal with COPD but also nerve damage in my back, I am really not able to have a garden in my back yard as I once did. However, I do now have a small flower garden on my front deck that allows me to putter and have my hands in the soil. It really is so soothing to have my hands in the soil to plant flowers, take care of them and feel the joy when they start to grow and finally bloom out in all their splendor. One of the best pots that I have found for a patio garden is a strawberry pot. You can plant a few different flowers in the different pockets of the pot and have a riotous amount of color to enjoy. I also use old hanging pots that others don't want. Some of them I hang and others I put up in places around the deck. Not at all what I would like to be having as far as a flower garden but still it gives me joy and some peaceful atmosphere to enjoy.
- I love the magic power of herbs. They are wonderful as a replacement for salt when I cook. I have a lovely herb garden right in my kitchen.
