Re: CULT: Alfalfa Pellets

Hi Rosalie--

I have been deep tilling this ground for 12 years--noting like what I got 
after using this batch of alfalfa. However, I misspoke when I said pellets.
Our feed store carries the cubes--1"x1"x2"-- of coarse alfalfa. It isn't
ground up, simply crushed and compressed, along with whatever else 
the combine chopped down during harvest. They were out of pellets, and 
substituted these cubes. The weeds were things not indigenous to the area,
plus a big tipoff--alfalfa. I still use alfalfa, jut never the cubes again.

  John Bruce wrote that he felt the pellets were responnsible for his extra 
  weeds.  Are you sure about that?  I would think the pellets were the same as 
  the meal and the weeds came from the  plowing/digging/rototilling/spading or 
  however you worked the ground.  As I understand it, there are weed seeds down 
  there that surface whenever the ground is disturbed  --- maybe buried for  
  many years.  I  have used pellets for many years == they are the small 
  pellets the size of an eraser -on-a-pencil  -- not the size of a thumb-size.  
  They stay put and don't blow in the wind when putting downl   And it is true 
  that horse, not rabbit food is preferred.  Rosalie nr Baltimore  zone 7
