Basil harvest, after fertilizing with Worm Power.
Grown from a single seedling, this pie-pumpkin vine has engulfed a trellis and spread through the surrounding beds.
In two of our test garden beds, I’m using All-Purpose Organic Fertilizer with worm castings (Worm Power Fertilizer). The plants have exploded with growth. I’ve never [...]
