DiRT M.D. Giveaway!

Dirt MD Giveaway! :: Five Little Homesteaders

I know you guys love a good giveaway.  I mean…. come on!  I do too!

The giveaway that I’m starting today is amazing for several reasons:

  1. As a soil drench, DiRT M.D.  will help prepare your gardens and beds for spring planting.  I know you are all looking forward to getting your gardens started!
  2. Used as a foliar feed later in the season, this product may help produce healthier plants and accelerated growth.
  3. Ocean Agro LLC (the company that manufactures DiRT M.D) has been kind enough to offer 11 chances for readers to win.  They will be giving away 1 large bottle of DiRT MD and 10 individual use pouches.

I was lucky enough to get to try DiRT MD for myself prior to hosting this giveaway and I must say, I was impressed.  I used it as a foliar feed on fava beans, broccoli and cauliflower.  The product was incredibly easy to use and left me with happy, green plants that produced beautifully.

DiRT MD is a tried and true product used in both large and small scale farming.  It is a concentrated liquid that can be used as a soil drench, foliar feed or used when propagating cuttings.  It is a 4.5% Humic Acid product that may increase micronutrient uptake of plants and increase their yield when applied correctly.

From the Ocean Agro LLC site:

Humic acid is the end result of decomposing organic matter.  Essentially, it is compost that is broken down by bacteria and other organisms.  Humic acid is not a fertilizer like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK) but rather a soil component that has a positive effect on overall health through a variety of mechanisms.  One of the ways in which humic acids enhance the soil to provide an effective growing environment is by increasing surface water penetration, infiltration, and soil water-holding capacity.  Additionally, humic acids also buffer plants from overly high concentrations of fertilizer salts, increase germination rates, and promotes more fibrous root growth.  Finally, Humic acids increase the availability of micronutrients, phosphorus, and potassium and retains nutrient ions, which prevents leaching.  By adding this type of product to a fertilizer mix, plants are more able to use NPK effectively.

Essentially, it is another tool in our tool belt for those of us hoping to feed our families off our land.

  4. David Bell says:

    My peppers

  5. Corn, broccoli, and my salad mixes

  6. I’d love to win and use this in our garden. We have a 4′ X 24′ plot in a community garden so we’d use it on everything and probably share with our neighbors too. We plan on growing tomatoes and cucumbers for sure this summer.

  7. Amanda Falicki says:

    I would use it on all of my vegetable garden

  8. Broccoli and kale

  9. I would use it on my entire vegetable garden

  10. Gretchen G says:

    I would use it on my broccoli, and probably everything else!

  11. Tomatoes

  12. Angela Young says:

    I would use this on my herb garden, which I have to re-establish (since my dog apparently really likes the taste of herbs!), and also on my ornamentals. No veggie garden yet, unfortunately.

  13. Cynthia P says:

    I have only a small container garden at the present time, so I would use this product on the herbs, onions & tomatoes I have planted there,

  14. Aubrey - http://homegrownandhealthy.com/ says:

    Id use it on my peppers, I’d love to get those guys growing!

  15. I just hopped on the real food wagon about a month ago and have been loving the whole experience of grass-fed beef, raw milk, and real butter and cheeses! Im wanting to dip into gardening so Ive been doing some research and Ive heard so many wonderful things about Dirt MD! When I saw this giveaway I was so excited (followed by some “yippies” and “woohoos” lol!) :)
    I think I would use this to grow some delicious broccoli and maybe some sweet onions! I have to double check what should be planted for spring but those two are my favorite and I would jump for joy if I successfully planted some veggies!

    Thanks for this amazing giveaway! :)

    I have a tomato garden that didn’t do so well last year. This sounds like it could help!

  17. Mel - http://www.faulkfarmstead.com/ says:

    Tomatoes!! I am most excited about those! :)

  18. Theresa says:

    I am starting my garden and I am noticing that on my tomatoes, the older leaves on what I have seeded are already starting to die off but the rest of the plant is going strong. This will totally help me out.

    • I wouldn’t worry about it too much. How big are the plants? About how many leaves do they have? Is it just the two little leaves that first came out with the plant sprouted?
