An Easy Way to Make Veganic Fertilizer

If you are looking for an easy and simple way to make veganic fertilizer, I found this tip on Farm Sanctuary’s web site:

Here are some tips to get you started on your veganic gardening adventure by making your own liquid feed:

  • Find a watertight container with a spigot on the bottom.
  • Fill this container with non-sprayed weeds and other leafy plant matter, then add water until the container is full.
  • Let it sit for a couple of weeks and presto! You now have a very rich fertilizer that you can pour on your happy vegetables.
  • In fact, it is so rich that you will want to dilute it; three parts plain water for one part “weed tea.”

Warning: Most people find that liquid feed has an unpleasant odor, so use caution when preparing or using it indoors.
