I have built and sold many full service chem fert plans over the last couple of months. IN the last month or so, I have become determined to not lay another chemical if I can help it. I know I can get away without the herbicides, and ferts. I am in a quandary as to the pesticides. I have oathed either a single treatment of Top choice for the year or three treatments of fert mixed with talstar. I am about to have to start laying the Top choice. I feel as if I am about to commit murder. Any way, as I walk toward the spreader with my head hung low and the microbe angel tied up and laying on my shop floor, Rodale and Ingham are playing taps on harmonica's made of hemp. My worms are all humming some low chant, my compost pile stopped steaming in a moment of silence.
