I had thought to start a thread just for organic gardeners. Inspired by information found while debating the benefits of using Sevin dust to combat mites in chickens on another thread. Also the special issue of Organic Magazine and the history in it. Of course we have gardening threads but I'd like one just for organic gardening advice. My mind is made up that organic gardening is best. Please do not drop in to debate the issue. I'm not looking for conversion. All I needed to read about Sevin is that it kills bees and that settled it for me. There has to be a better way. So let me pose the questions. What do you do that is organic ? Are you 50% organic? 100% organic? IMO some is better than nothing. Perhaps you have hints to helping in transitioning to organic? Again please don't come here to debate Organic vs. Non organic. This thread is for the solidly converted to Organic backyard gardening. I have other questions but I'll wait to see how this goes. Thanks, Rancher Hicks.
