    Farmers--here we find a beautiful artwork card (unsigned)_ for FERTILIZER!! I bought this about 4 decades ago with a box lot of trade cards mostly c. 1888-ish and I am sure that holds true for this card as well.
    The show-off on the left in his elegant corn field boasts about his crop for which he used a little "Homestead Bone Black Fertilizer" while the dude on the right scratches his head in disbelief. He has thrown down his straw hat in is pitiful field of listless corn! Poor guy! And he was the one with the green thumb!

      What is real BLACK bone fertilizer? Bones are white.

      Carbon was added, hence its colour.

      Have you ever farmed? It seems like very hard work. Unless of course you used the Black Bone Fertilizer!! I was thinking they maybe cooked the bones with charcoal!

      Go to a health store. You'll find edible versions of carbon. ;)

      We do our own home food gardening for some things. I've also just began making my own medicinal preparations from herbs as not long ago I came down with Strep Throat (doesn't take a doctor to tell me what those lesions in my throat are). As I have no insurance and don't care to pay the doctors, I took it into my own hand.
      Now I understand why essential oils are so expensive. To get a fairly pure form, you need a lot of herbal matter! A bowl boils down to an ounce! LOL.
