  • Q. I've always been curious about the great results Dr. Mittleider achieves, his apparent concern for the well-being of worldwide poor farmers, etc. vs. the dislike of chemical fertilizers by organic gardeners. Besides the idea of a build-up of nutrients, per se, that might be harmful, the other...

  • I recommend each of you review your supply of the natural mineral nutrients with which you feed your vegetable garden, and stock up NOW. You should have at least a two-year supply on hand at all times. There is no loss in strength or availability, so don't worry about that. Get them before...

  • If I use 10-10-10, instead of 16-16-16 in my Weekly Feed mix, do I need to apply 60% more fertilizer to the garden each time? Or do I need 60% more NPK in the mix?
    That may seem logical, but the answer is NO, you do not increase the amount of NPK in the mix, and you should still use 16 ounces per 30' Soil-Bed. The Mittleider Magic Weekly Feed sold in stores is 13-8-13, and 10-10-10 will work okay as a substitute. So, I do not recommend you change the amounts...

  • Do I replenish the custom soil annually in the same quantities? The web site said you could use the custom made soil over and over. And how do I fertilize the second year?
    Yes you can use the same soil materials over and over, just replenish it as it subsides in the box. Fertilize each year the same, but don't dig everything out of the box, in order to put the materials at the bottom the way you did the first year. And don't worry if you disturb the Pre-Plant at the...
