1. Worms are good. Really good. Greenhouse tomatoes grown in a mixture of worm compost and coconut fiber produced more marketable tomatoes than those grown in rockwool. Well–yeah, who'd want to live in rockwool?
2. You don't need all that damn potassium fertlizer. Belgrade's ancient fortress, built of white limestone, is turning black thanks to the overuse of fertilizer in the flower beds around the site, which is now a tourist attraction. C'mon, people. Enough already!
3. Fusarium can kill you. Okay, we didn't warn you about that one before. But in case you hadn't had time to become really, really terrified of anything yet today, there's this: Fusarium (yes, the plant fungus) also comes in strains that can live in your bathroom sink drain and attack you when you least expect it! Such as when you're washing your contact lenses!
