<p>Speaker 1:&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Here we are, day nine. Quarter cup. Sprinkle it on evenly end to end, side to side. Once again, we&#39;re going to water it in. Remember, we&#39;re not feeding roots here. All we&#39;re doing is putting enough moisture on to keep that bacteria active inside the bale. This is not necessarily about watering any plant roots, and it&#39;s not always just about driving the fertilizer into the bale, or melting it in. It&#39;s really just about moisture for the bacteria. Those bacteria will come right to the surface and grab that fertilizer if and when they need it for their replication or their process of reproduction inside the bale. Remember, it&#39;s those bacteria dividing and replicating, during that process they vibrate, and that&#39;s what causes the heat inside your bales. That&#39;s it for day number nine. See you tomorrow for day number ten.</p>
