Waste not want not taken a bit further.

Gidday Well that old gas you were using back then was probably produced in a refinery that was designed nearly 200 years ago.

As for the horse poop, why on earth would spuds not like good organic matter. If in doubt only do half the crop with plenty and the rest leave then you will know absolutel...

Aerated compost tea also can help. It covers the leave with the goodies and they are supposed to keep the baddies out.

When standing at the bus stop a gorgeous blonde came to wait for the bu...
