Fertilizer weather simple or Formulated is Found in the Garage or Barn of every homeowner and Farmer across the land.

Vintage glass jar now Full of nails from my own garage collection was once Full of liquid Fertilizer in the 1950s.

I am of an age that I cannot shop for Fertilizer without  thinking about the story of President Lyndon Johnson and his colorful language.

It goes like this:

Lady Bird Johnson had friends out to the ranch and Lyndon came in while they were talking. He kept referring to ‘manure’. When he left, one of Lady Bird’s friends told her that she should tell him not to say ‘manure’ but to replace it with ‘fertilizer’. Her response? ‘My lord, do you have any idea how long it took me to get him to say manure!?!’
