Fertilizers and pesticides-Are they necessary?
In my small backyard I do not use chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Segregated kitchen waste of vegetable peels and dead leaves from the yard are composted and used as manure. Calcium for my lime trees? That comes from eggshells. Natural pesticides are used when needed. The most effective pesticide I found comes from the oil of the Neem tree (available in ready to use form).
I have uploaded some slide shows of the plant and animal life who have made my garden their home. See the link
