PostSubject: Paramagnetic Rock   Wed Jul 27, 2011 1:08 pm

this is an excerpt from a post blog from a fella named Calvin Bey, there is also a link provided to read his full bio and thread about paramagnetic rock.

Briefly, he discusses about the typical growing season here where we live but this particular discussion is about a 95 day sweet corn heirloom Country Gentleman,

except quote -
"Here are the results. In three days after planting, the corn was up and it began to grow. In 30 days the corn was 6 feet tall, in 40 days it was 9 feet, in 50 days it was 12 feet, and on the 59th day from planting, we ate sweet corn with a Brix reading of 20. A few days later, the harvested corn had Brix values from 24-30. Any gardener would be happy to have these results. So what is the explanation for my corn reaching maturity in 59 days?
end quote"

WOw! that sounds like some powerful stuff!

Especially good for places where the season is where I live. Neat!

I have taken that leap!
I went down to the local Nitron store (Just the company name) and picked up 50 pounds of paramagnetic rock.
The folks there were nice enough,
It kinda sounds like a lot, but it was only a 5 gallon bucket of mineral.
When I got home with it I really was surprised to the fact that it
really is magnetic. I dropped a magnet into it and rock stuck to it.

It looks like black sand,
They said this mineral was trucked in from Canada,

I have tomatoes and marigolds that are about 2 weeks old that I had started and set out for the fall season, I spread the sand on top of the mulch and watered it in, it measured out to be about a cup around each plant. I use all organic methods of gardening, no commercial or manufactured chemicals or fertilizers. But I have several compost piles of varying ages which is blended in during the initial planting, and then watered in with a compost tea. (How British, eh)

This is essentially day 1 of this venture.

I have found that if you click on the pic, it will enlarge to view better.
