<p>It&#39;s day number seven, and remember, seven, eight, nine, we&#39;re going to cut the amount in half. Today we&#39;re going to apply a quarter of a cup of our refined fertilizer. We&#39;re just going to take the fertilizer, it&#39;s half as much so it doesn&#39;t take much to apply, end to end, side to side. Once we get the fertilizer on as evenly as possible, grab our watering can, hopefully with water that&#39;s been sitting out overnight in a bucket so we have warmed water, and we&#39;re going to sprinkle that on nice and evenly.</p> <p>One of the things that might happen by the time you to day seven, eight, nine, is your bales will sort of develop these water channels down through the bale. I call them water slides, right through your bale. If that happens, it&#39;s just probably because you&#39;ve been putting too much water on. Just try to put your water and your fertilizer on in areas where it doesn&#39;t all go right down the water slide and out the bottom of the bale.</p> <p>Even water and not over-watering is the important thing. A gallon of water is all it takes. Again, you might see a little fertilizer accumulate on top of the bales; that&#39;s not a big deal. Don&#39;t worry about that, move on. We&#39;ll see you on day number eight, tomorrow.</p>
