Produce Garden

"My husband and I used this product this year (2017) for the first time. About March or so, we hand sprayed our garden and vegetable boxes with the recommended dosage of Organic Growth Burst and then tilled it into the soil or in the boxes, turned the soil before planting

The first vegetables we planted were onions and potatoes. We planted onions in some flower pots (no Growth Burst) but potting soil as well as in the garden between the hills of potatoes (with Growth Burst). There was definitely a difference between the sizes of the onions - the garden being quite a bit larger even though the flower pots had potting soil. Also, the garden onions were harvestable earlier.

Potatoes - We have never seen so many potatoes - we planted 3 rows - a red, a white, and a yellow. All three did well, but had we known how much they would produce, we would have only grown 1/3 row of each. Few bugs on the potatoes; very easy to dig - not too deep, not too shallow - just the right depth. We could dig them with our gloved hands... few were exposed to the sun (which turns them green)... just a much looser soil in which to work.

Beets were planted next - we think what we noticed most about the "many" beets is the germination rate even though we were using one and two year old seed...most of them sprouted in contrast to previous years when I planted 2 and 3 times to get enough. We have canned and canned beet pickles and still have beets in the garden as of September 2017.

Beans followed - usually we plant and re-plant beans, but not so this year; only had to plant once and practically every seed germinated. I have opened up my garden to several of the neighbors to pick beans and am now in the process of drying "shellies"; probably will not buy soup beans this Winter since we have enough to dry ourselves if we have the energy to preserve them.

Cucumbers and peppers (both sweet and jalapeno) were abundant. Lots of homemade pickles this year. We should not be buying pickles this Winter - which is unusual.

Tomatoes - oh so sweet tasting! Yes, some were heirloom, but not all and they were all extremely sweet - exceptional! No bugs or worms on the tomatoes and last year, the bugs devoured the tomatoes. We have just planted fall tomatoes (about August 1, 2017) and they are doing nicely...should have green tomatoes to put in "cold room" of our basement and anticipate have fresh tomatoes through December 2017  and maybe January 2018. Their flavor will probably not be as good, but still much better than hot house tomatoes from the grocery. I have canned, frozen, and dehydrated tomatoes and have given away lots. The Romas have done exceptionally well as have the Early girl, Beef Steak and the heirlooms...a very bountiful harvest. All our neighbors love us - so much to give them this Summer.

We have just dug our sweet potatoes - WOW! Each hill had 15-18 nice sized sweet potatoes and we planted 24 plants so several bushels of sweet potatoes. The sweet potatoes were so easy to dig - again the soil seemed much looser and we had potatoes galore, contrary to last year when we had vines galore.

Our garden has never produced this well!!! WE have harvested to can, freeze, and dehydrate or dry so much, not to mention what we have given away. The soil seems so much looser and more manageable, and there seems to be fewer bugs. If we get to continue to use GROWTH BURST, we may need to decrease the size of our garden - one can eat, can, freeze, dehydrate, and give away just so much product. Thanks to the product GROWTH BURST, our Summer harvest has been much easier and more bountiful." - Margaret Stewart
