In this video I show you how we use raw milk in the garden. From what I’ve read, raw milk can help with blossom end rot which is caused by low calcium. It’s also a good fertilizer and works to help repel insects. I’ve been using it for several years now and have had good results with it. To read more about it, click here.
This year I’m spraying the garden with several different things to help prevent fungus and disease. On this day I used Actinovate, which is an organic fungicide that helps to prevent and cure a wide range of diseases that affect plants.
As I was spraying I discovered that my tomatoes look like they may be starting to be affected by some sort of disease. It doesn’t help that we’ve had some big rains lately, then on top of that, when ever it does finally dry out and I do water, we end up with another big down pour the next day. I’m sure that the inconsistent amount of water they’ve gotten has been pretty hard on them.
Last year this spray did wonders for my plants, just hoping it will work that well this year. I believe I really need to consider crop rotation for next year.
