Dew-Anner (Guano) – Organic Fertilizer

Q: Have you ever hear of “Dew Anner” fertilizer? My daddy used it at planting time.

A: I’m pretty certain your father was referring to guano, often pronounced “gu-anner” by country folk. Although true guano is simply mined bat or bird dung, some farmers would refer to all fertilizers as guano. Bat guano is available online and at small garden centers. It’s a fine organic fertilizer.
