Text messages at 51283605 90. Welcome back, folks last little bit of the show here, let me try to cover some of the text messages that we've gotten. Can you poured corps, including around plants in a garden? Yes. The plants are already growing. I know some friends who use corn gluten, they would plant their onions. Because of the way onions they're grown so close together. They're really a monster to wed. They're hard to do with the hoe. You You basically have to hand we'd um They would plant the onions. Then put down the corn gluten. Cora gluten doesn't affect and already growing plant. So the onions weren't bothered by it. But it prevented weeds from germinating and it reduced the amount of work they needed to do to keep. The The onion bed from being overrun by weeds so you can use corn gluten in your garden. But you cannot use corn gluten somewhere where you were planting by seed. Because it will stop the seeds from germinating. So if your garden is already full of already growing plants, corn gluten is safe to use in that area won't affect plants that are already growing. Just remember you're using corn gluten who can't be planting seeds with it? You have to give the corn gluten that six weeks or so before you start putting seeds in the soil or the quarreled, Wignall, stop your seeds from growing. So safety used in your garden under those conditions. Now, corn gluten comes in a couple of different forms. It's crowned is a meal, which is kind of fluffy. It looks like sometimes it's chipped. Where they just take the dried corn in this fractured and it almost looks like scratch for those of you raise chickens. It can be Pel. It'd Any time you have the dry product. And result is the same. I don't know of any study that shows one form is more efficient or effective than the other. And the dry product is the on. Lee won that when it's done doing its job. Breaks down into a fertilizer. Now, what's that mean? The dry product when it's quit doing and stop the weeds? Was about 9% nitrogen. Now, why would I talk about the drive products off? Because you can get corn gluten in a liquid form. You can get it in a spray bottle attached to the store hose and sprayers really easy to use. Liquid form stops. Weeds does the same thing The dry does. The liquid form does not break down into a fertilizer. So it's only the weed part that dry for Mia's weed and feed in an organic sense. Because it will stop the weeds from germinating and Linden doing its job It breaks down into a fertilizer doesn't matter what form the dry product is. It stops with and it's a fertilizer. The liquid form may be very convenient for you on the whole is ends prayer. I get that there's lots of times. Works really well, when you're doing your onion bad, for example. But the liquid form provides no fertilization. So that's really the only difference between the 21 may be more convenient, but one provides that extra boost of fertilization. Which really does a good job in our turf. Stopping those ugly weeds that show up when we haven't already growing turfgrass And then fertilizing it at the right time in the spring to really put on that new growth. That's super effective it giving you a real nice, consistent and stir so time it out properly. But there's the dries the on Lee won that also provides Fertilizer effect. What else we got here? Corn gluten around the garden amaryllis bulbs. They naturalized here. If you have planted the hardy Amarillas You can leave them in the ground. Will bloom ones. Cut them back when the least start turning brown, you know, introduce high, Stubbs. Mark where that bed is. They should come back. Every year. You can leave them in the ground here in Texas. If you dug them up and you want to store them because you're doing the inside bulbs, and you don't want a pot with justice will stub in it. Usually.
