“This year is my first time, “using cotton seed
hull in my garden. “It seems to have an
insecticide smell to it. “Does cotton seed hull
have insecticides on it, and is this a problem?” And this is from Ron. So, we’re talkin’ about cotton. We know that they
spray cotton, a lot. Right, with pesticides. – (Carol)
Yes. – So, would it have
insecticides on it, and is that a problem? – I can’t imagine that it
would still be on it… That much. Cotton seed hulls have a
distinctive odor, anyway. – (Chris)
Yeah, yeah. – I’ve actually, growing
in gin trash, this year. That’s got some hull, and trash. It does have a distinctive
smell, but I’m not… I don’t know that I could say
it was from the insecticides. I think it’d have to run some
kind of formal chemistry test, to know for sure. – I would… Say the same. That’ll be what I would go with. Because, of course, we do
know cotton is sprayed, and it is around here. I just wouldn’t think. – (Carol)
I would think those chemicals would break down… – See, I would think
they would break down, and you wouldn’t have
a problem with it. – Right. – Is what I would think. – Yeah, ’cause you’d only, you’d still only smell it,
right, if you spray it anyway. – (Chris)
Right, right. And it’s probably been
out there for a while. It’s been broken down,
for the most part. I just, I wouldn’t think you would have a huge
problem with it, Mr. Ron. I wouldn’t! – (Carol)
I wouldn’t. I use it. You know, I’m not scared of it. (Chris chuckling) – (Chris)
And so, your plants, that
you use it around, doesn’t show any signs of–
– No, they’re flourishing. Oh, my gosh. The color on my
vegetables this year, since I got a hold of the gin
trash is just fabulous. – Okay. – Had to watch a little
bit, for the pigweed. – Right, right, yeah! – Make sure I don’t get
the resistant pigweed. – People are, the gin trash
is pretty big now. Your gin trash, the
cotton seed hulls. A lotta people are
usin’ those these days. – Beautiful stuff.
