Should I be raising chickens?
Host: Lynna “A Preppers Path”
Chickens, the egg before the hen or the hen before the egg? An age ole question and at this stage of the game does it matter?

Before you plant a seed or seedling, you need to apply some fertilizer to the soil or container. What kind and how much depends on what you’re growing, and your particular style of growing. So it’s important to have a good understanding of the nutrient needs of the specific plants. Whether you’re organic, or just a conventional gardener, there are plenty of choices when it comes to feeding your plants. For this week’s show, I’ll be talking about N-P-K…the fertilizer ratio that is printed on each bag. For many people, the preference is simply a balanced fertilizer like 10-10-10 (triple 10). But suppose you want to address the nitrogen issue for side dressing a heavy feeder like corn. Or maybe you want to increase the flowers in your flower garden by adding some phosphorus. What products are available? How do you know which is best, or when to apply it? Join me tonight on Preparing to Provide for an interesting discussion as I answer these questions and many more, and try to help you gain a better understand of what you can do to grow a better garden.
