In reply to comment: so true (see in situ)

I live in southwest Minnesota, where the monarch buterfly is

extinct. I have seen only a few lightning bugs they should be completely eradicated in a couple days or weeks. I can sometime drive for miles before you see the first bird, they are in larger numbers in the city.

I am also experimenting growing food with no commercial fertilizer, using only bacteria to boost the soil.

The soil should be completely deficient of fertilizer until the plant needs it. There is an exchange between plants, bacteria and fungus. If there is no commercial fertilizer the weeds are less, but I have not noticed this.

I wonder if my vegies will have the correct amounts of sulphur?
