If you missed our video yesterday, we talked about cutting back mass amounts of our farm's Mexican Sunflower, to spread it around the farm. If you missed that footage, you can find it here:

About once a month, we cut back all of the Mexican sunflower (Tithonia diversifolia)& our native clumping grass, Fakahatchee, growing around the farm. In this video, we show you how we apply this 'green manure' to our heavy feeding plants to create a slow-release fertilizer that acts as an alternative to chicken manure.
