In my latest post for Mother Earth News, I take a look at how you can fertilize on the cheap… and provide a horrifyingly stinky recipe that will make your plants grow like mad.
Anyone have some favorite fertilizers for their garden they’d like to share?
Awesome! Thanks 🙂
I'm not sure which is more appealing – the road kill for chickens or the urine based fertilizer. 😉
Wow – there's a whole other level of gardening/farming I never imagined existed.
Very interesting stuff!
Your comment made me laugh out loud. When you start digging into aboriginal methods, traditional waste management, pioneer farming, etc., the rabbit hole gets very deep indeed. And sometimes it's filled with manure.
These skills may become useful again, even though some are rather distasteful. If I thought I'd be able to afford AC, hold down a great job, have a retirement fund in 10 years and live under a perpetually stable and benevolent government… I wouldn't even bother. But there are enough doubts in my mind at this point that I'm gonna keep reading on what to do if the lights go out and the toilets don't flush.
I also pray a lot. 🙂
