John Cancio at Niskayuna Senior Center Garden Club. Want to know if fertalizer should be applied to a new garden Cow maneur. Any help would be appreciated. How about visiting us tuesdays, thursdays at the old locomotive club Aquaduct road. My Phone 518 393 3226 Thank you

Adding organic matter like cow manure is always a good idea.  This is also a good time to check the pH of the soil and add lime if needed.  Applied now, it will have all winter to correct the pH of the soil…it takes about 6-8 weeks so the soil will be nice a sweet and ready to go in spring.  HERE’S A LINK that describes how to do a pH test…easy peasy,  Vegetable gardens like a pH of 6.5 to 7.0.  Blending in some Bio-Tone organic plant food when the soil warms in spring would be the best way to supercharge the nutrient level in spring prior to planting,  More on Bio-Tone HERE.
