Making Fertilizer


Following Steve Solomon’s recipe for homemade fertilizer

The basic recipe:

4 Parts seed meal. He suggests low cost high nutrient value powered animal feed. I’m gonna use stale wheat and semolina flour first.

1 Part agricultural lime

1 Part Bone meal

Additional inputs:

If Dolomite Lime is available 1/2 Part Dolomite Lime and only 1/2 Part agricultural lime in the basic recipe.

1/2 Part Kelp meal

Add sparingly and only based on soil testing:

Agricultural Sulfur recommended amount

Epsom Salts recommended amount

Boron 1/2 recommended amount

Most of the ingredients are found at my local feed store.
