    Default Fish Emulsion

    Hey, just thought I'd mention they are carrying the Alaskan fish emulsion fertilizer at our local HD. My colleague in the Ed. Dept. just got some last night for our Native American Garden (my baby when I was in the ed. dept. my earlier plant obsession, the 3 sisters! )....didn't someone say they were out of business? or had been bought out? Can't recall but did remember there was some discussion on that.

    Oh you changed your avatar name to Super Slipper Girl, now? Sounds like an upgrade name to Mad Paph Girl. I like the new one because slippers can be both Paphs or Phrags and/or even Cyps, so I like it!

    I think lja was the one who mentioned that they were out of business or sold to another co.

    hee hee! I have a team of super hero-esque titles now..LOL!

    Yes that's what I thought when we were chatting about the water issue a bit ago...easier to type slipper than paphs/phrags...and I do so love the phrags...I couldn't think of a third "s" word though that worked, I enjoy being alliterative!

    All of a sudden, I see fish emulsion at all of the HD & Lowes. Maybe they were brought back by popular demand?

    They very well may have been brought back--that would be great news! I was told a year ago from one of our wholesale suppliers that the Alaskan company had gone out of business. If they're back, or had been bought out by someone else, that's awesome! I won't have to change fertilizers!
