Put alfalfa pellets around my 3 roses today. I can’t even remember when I bought the alfalfa. Pee-yoo!

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.

I make a tea with the alfalfa pellets that stinks for a couple of hours after I apply it but no longer.

I did the same thing! Alfalfa had been left outside over the winter and was all clumpy. Looked like road apples! 🙂

This had been in a closed bin for several years and smelled like urine.
