Nutritional Deficiencies in Soil

The link talks about plant food, but I really like the image within the page that outlines how to identify a few nutrient deficiencies.

Then, the page continues to discuss nutrient deficiencies: nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium & calcium. This is interesting & helpful. It can be made with items most of us already have in our pantries.

Early planting…

I seeded my first vegetables & flowers yesterday! I’m going to start more today in my front yard I think. I want to start some lettuce & oregano… Also tomatoes. Started now, they will be large enough to bury 2/3 of the plant the way they are supposed to be planted. This provides the plant a stronger root system.
