Earth Day

Let's put Earth Day and gardening together.  Both have lots of dirt.  The Enquirer should be so lucky.  But back to my point, which is Earth Day plus gardening equals organic gardening!  Tackle the challenge of coaxing fine produce out of good old Iowa soil without the use of icky stuff.  Apparently there are lots of other ways of fighting off pests and diseases.  Case in point:  according to The gardener's A-Z guide to growing organic food, you can "Spray fruit trees with liquid prevent spread of fungus".  Yet another use for seaweed, Mother Nature's baking soda.
We have loads of books with information about Organic Gardening

I wonder where in Iowa one would buy liquid seaweed?
