I hate to garden but having worked for a couple for three years as a handyman with an organic farm I know a few things.

Nature loves urine, chicken shit, and most likely, longhorn shit, so piss on everything and make good use of that longhorn shit.

I saw you in the web cam this morning.

I will have to try it. I sometimes
substitute barley for rice. I just finished a 10x16 hoophouse and used these folks exclusively for material.I recommend them.

Saw BBC's advice as I'm writing this. Get a gal. milk or H2O jug.
Every time you have to take a leak, use it.When it's full dilute
with 10 gals. H20. You won't believe the results.
I have often wondered if you spend more time on the greenhouse or shit duty.Being a field lab, build a digester,run the pipe into your
kitchen and get off the propane. The effluent is excellent fertilizer also.

Having read books by this author, I have no problems recommedning it. Also if you want to read someone else I think has some great ideas about how to grow food without all the effort that you see in most garden books I recommend Gene Logsdon. A farmer/writer from Ohio who has done big scale farming and backyard gardnening.

Just wait until you have the greenhouse planted, so much you can't eat it all!!

Dried urine salts are also an ingredient in some gun powders.

We're putting in a "Square Foot Garden" this year. I'm too lazy to do it the old fashioned way.

I'm very optimistic. I will bring you tomatoes in May.

It all looks and sounds great. Wish I was a gardener, though...
