Fish Fertilizer Disaster
Last summer, I mixed a small amount of fish fertilizer into 3 gallons of water in a watering can. I then forgot about it. A week or so later, I saw it. It smelled okay (for fish fertilizer) so I used it. Mistake. Wherever it had been applied, plants died. The strawberry patch was hit worst — the plants at the application site and, I believe, their daughters, died and over the winter turned into a black slimy mess. My question to you — of all the questions that may be asked about this debacle — is whether I should dig down and remove the soil that I watered with fish fertilizer and replace it with soil that no one has done anything idiotic to. Thank you for your help.
