Subject: RE: AZOMITE®
I first read about AZOMITE® while browsing the Organic Supply Catalog. Due to a very late start gardening here in the Northeast this year due to excessive rain and no sun (in May it rained 24 of the 31 days), I decided to give it a try.
I planted my garden from mostly plants the first week of June. I sprinkled the AZOMITE® around my leggy sunflowers (then about 6” tall) and around my winter squash, melons, and cucumbers. The squash, melons, and cucumbers were getting very yellowy leaves. This is a community garden that I did not lime nor know what was planted last year. Within 10 days, my sunflowers were 2 feet tall, and all the yellowing on the other plants disappeared. This means the plants were able to utilize the nutrients in the soil.
The sunflowers continued to shoot to the sky and now (July 23) are about 6 to 7 feet tall and the yellowing on the other plants has not returned. The Haricot Verts I planted with AZOMITE® and side-dressed 2 weeks later are bearing beans for over a week now while my bush bean that were only side-dressed are just starting to flower. Although my neighbors are having problems with cuke beetles, my cucumber plants are healthy and bearing cukes. My beets also got some AZOMITE® and are doing as well as my neighbor who plants his a good 3 weeks before me. I feel good about using a product that is organic and soil-nurturing, and I don’t have to be concerned about my granddaughter touching the plants.
I know that I am enriching the soil and helping the earthworms and nature to revitalize my garden. I wholly recommend this product to anyone who wants to grow either flowers or vegetables and have a bountiful crop. I’m so glad I read about and used AZOMITE® !
