My resident gardening expert is my friend Maria. She’s been gardening for YEARS, and is full of awesome advice on all sorts of issues.
She’s the one that helped me get rid of the grey flesh fruit flies that nearly decimated my tomatoes. She also has zucchini’s growing out her ears, and helped me figure out that my lack of fruit was because my zucchini flowers weren’t being pollinated very well.
During our last discussion (when I invited myself over to admire her zucchini plants), she asked me what I was using for fertilizer.
Um… fertilizer? You mean, I really have to do that? I thought that was just for the super-gardeners. You know, the ones who want a super great, show-up-the-neighborhood type of harvest.
And if we’re being honest, what gardener doesn’t want an over-producing garden?!
