The one and only crafty thing I accomplished this season: a jar of organic fertilizer, layered like those sand painting things we used to have to make in the second grade. Bat guano, fish meal, greensand, bonemeal, kelp meal…it may not be precisely the combination of ingredients your garden needs, but hey, it probably can’t hurt. And it sure is pretty.
Any other good garden-related gifts discovered/given/received this year? I’m still waiting for my big Pile O Shit. Either my loved ones don’t really believe that I actually want rotten horse manure for Christmas, or they just can’t bring themselves to actually cause it to be dumped in the alley on Christmas morn.Posted by Amy Stewart on December 20, 2006 at 6:30 am, in the category Taking Your Gardening Dollar.
