Something smells fishy
I just finished planting three beds while the boys had their morning nap. Swiss chard, beet greens, kale and early beets. Because we are organic we do not use regular fertilizer so we have to be creative and use other sources of nutrients. For the last two years we have been using crab meal from a farm in New Brunswick. Its supposed to be wonderful and it really does seem to work but man it stinks!! As soon as I was finished spreading it (by hand with the use of an ice cream bucket) I came in, changed my clothes, washed my hands with industrial hand cleaner and I still stink like fish guts. I can't wait to see what the babies think of that. Oh the things we do for great veggie crops.
