Homemade Liquid Organic Compost / Fertilizers.

Your plants just like you need good food to grow optimally.  Using Compost, manure and fertilizers is a way to ensure the soil is feeding your plants adequate nutrients. Over time adding solid manure and compost may leave some fibre build up in your soil especially if yours is a #ContainerGarden.  So may have no more space to add solid manure or compost. So rather than change your soil you can use Liquid fertilizer

I’ve named them

Blender Compost

This is a very great way to give your plants a quick nitrogen and calcium boost. You need,

  • Plantain or Banana Peels.
  • Egg Shells
  • Used coffee grounds
  • Water

    In a blender, blend all to a smooth slurry, add some more water and apply to the base of your plants
Plantain Peels+Egg Shells+Used Coffee Grounds

Kitchen Sink Liquid Fertilizer

For this take craps such as banana or plantain peel, potato peel, chopped vegetable peels and stalks. Chop it up to half way of a gallon (a 4/5 litre bucket with lid will do). Pour enough water to fill the bucket.  Keep the lid on and leave for between 48hrs to 1 week before straining and using.

( the last batch I made I added 1/4 tsp of Epsom salt and chucked some charcoal just for the carbon)

Pee Ash Liquid Fertilizer

Urine + Wood Ash +  Green Tea + Water
1 part Urine + 1/4 part wood Ash+ 1 Part concreted brewed green tea including the insides+ 4 parts water.
This can be used immediately.
