<p>Okay, we&#39;re back for day three. Day three again we&#39;re back to the fertilizer, one half cup, sprinkle it from end to end, side to side, do a couple of coatings over the top of your bale. This isn&#39;t complicated, and I don&#39;t want you to spend a whole lot of time doing it. Don&#39;t worry about getting it on exactly perfectly, just sprinkle it on, end to end, side to side till you get half a cup. Grab your watering can, you need another gallon of water on top of that bale, try to get the fertilizer to soak in as best as you can, but don&#39;t over-water. Again, one gallon is all it takes.</p> <p>If you put too much water on, you might wash some of the fertilizer right off the bottom of the bale. We certainly don&#39;t want to put so much on there we see water running out the bottom of the bale. All that&#39;s going to do is carry our soluble nutrients like nitrogen and calcium right off the bottom of the bale. You get one gallon of water on that bale, and guess what, you&#39;re done for the day, take the rest of the day off. See you tomorrow.</p>
