Growing with just cow manure?
I just want to dig a hole and put a handful of cow manure in it. With this allow a decent yield. I have never grown like this before. I have read that cow manure has a rough npk of .5-.5-.5...is this right? I will be planting in a new area. No till style. Can I just dig a hole and put some compost in it? Will this produce a healthy crop? I mean will it take my tomato plant through season and survive inevitable blights?
I have planted before using Tomato Tone and Lime. This has produced good results...but I am trying to plant without using bone meals and feather meals etc. Will cow compost work with a little Lime?...or is the NPK just too low? I received tomatoes from a guy who gave me giant tomatoes. He wrote me that he amends with just a shovelful of cow compost. I am a little skeptical. Has anyone else grown this way with bountiful results?
