Let's Talk Organic

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whitney Farms for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

You know that I love all things organic, especially when it comes to food. You might also know that I love fresh vegetables and fruits - and that I tend to lean away from animal products.

I am excited about this year's garden! For years, my rhubarb plants have not done well. If I got a handful of rhubarb during the spring and summer months, I was doing well. This year, I called my friend, Debbie, and asked her what I could do for my rhubarb - after all, she is the one who gave me my oldest plant. Her reply? FERTILIZE! She said that you cannot overfertilize rhubarb. I have tried using conventional fertilizers in the past, but have had not the best results. This year is different.

Well, in March I gave it a large dose of natural fertilizer (a.k.a. cow manure) and voila! I have rhubarb that is growing rapidly.


I have since been looking everywhere for organic fertilizers and organic plant food like mad. I refuse to put chemicals into my soil, prefering an organic soil.

Organic Plant Food

Growing organically means eating organically, translating into a healthier body for all of us.
