It was nice to see the video of Madhava, but there is no explanation of who he is or where he is from. Also, i want to hear from ISCOWP what kind of fertilizer you use for make garden plants produce, besides cow manure. Also, what do you do with the cow manure before using it? I am looking for organic fertilizer that is not from a slaughterhouse, but I am not having much luck. Ever tried humanure? Hare Krishna. Jai Srila Prabhupada.

Haribol Vaninatha,

Madhava is a famous kirtan singer well known in the Hare Krsna Movement.

We use mostly cow manure with some wood ash from our winter fires. The cow manure is collected from the barns in spring and it sits until fall at which time it is spread on the pastures and garden. In fall the cow manure in the garden is tilled into the earth. The wood ash is sprinkled on the garden when we clean out our wood burning stove during the winter.

We have never had to use any other fertilizer.
