My original soil test says my vegetable garden is low on P and recommends adding it. I ordered bone char from Fedco, mostly because it seemed like the best P product for my soil from what they offered.
I realize I might be having a goofy moment, but it really creeps me out when I incorporate it in my garden. It smells bad and has a really disconcerting black color. Then I looked at the wikipedia entry and wondered about the whole color/quality issue they discuss. (but of course that might be related to bone char's other uses in water filtering and sugar production). And although this is OMRI approved product, I am wondering if this is the gardening equivalent of "pink slime"---just have so little faith in how cattle are raised/slaughtered/processed in our country.
Thoughts? Am I being a nervous nellie?
