This is a side-by side test for a 2020 fall garden through our 2021 spring gardens to see how different amendments work in the garden. Does biochar work? Is 10-10-10 as good as fish emulsion? Does Dyna-Gro work? Is Urine a good fertilizer? Will Steve Solomon's fertilizer mix beat lasagna gardening? You'll have to stay tuned and find out!
