|One of my college text books*|
I don’t know what we’ll do or how we’ll celebrate.
I don’t know who will join in or who will think it is a bunch of horse manure.
Mark your calendars…
I’m declaring one year from today, December 12, 2012, to be…
12-12-12, good ol’ Triple 12, will be a day to fawn over fertilizer, pontificate on plant nutrients, converse about compost.
This once in a lifetime event will be open to all and feature both inorganic and organic fertilizers.
It will be all fertilizer, all day long with special celebrations at 12:12 pm in whatever location you are in.
We can share thoughts and ideas about compost, manure tea, anhydrous ammonia, phosphorus, potassium, and minor nutrients. We can reminisce about fertilizers of the past and discuss fertilizers of the present.
We can muse about what happens to plants when they get too much fertilizer and what happens to plants when they don’t get enough fertilizer.
We can have quizzes to find out who knows the most about plant fertility and fertilizers.
We can do whatever we want to do because we have a year to plan for it.
International Fertilizer Day, 12-12-12.
Just imagine the possibilities.
*Yes, that is an actual textbook from my college days. Don’t even think about commenting about how it looks like one of my old antique gardening books. Inside are my secret notes handwritten in the margins. No, you can’t see them, they are my secret notes.
