Weekly Garden Tip
Studies show that adding a 10-20% ratio of worm castings to your seedling mix is the ideal ratio to help give your plants a healthy start. You can also use this for your direct sowing by digging a double trench. Dig a trench where you’ll plant your seeds a little deeper than normal—about 2 inches deeper. Sprinkle a line of worm castings and compost, cover with a little soil, and then plant your seed row.
