We have compiled a list of natural ways to fertilize a vegetable garden that you can try this planting season. You will find these to be effective yet gentle and chemical free at the same time…
3 Natural Ways to Fertilize A Vegetable Garden:
1. Enjoy the magic of manure. 😉
Manure works miracles on plants. Ask a local farmer for some nutrient rich animal manure, spread in out on your soil, and watch it go to work. Local farmers should be happy to provide you with some as long as you offer to pick it up and haul it.
2. Egg shells are excellent.
Easter now over – you may have some of these lying around! Crush up your used egg shells and sprinkle them right into your soil. They are nutrient rich and full of calcium, so ideal for feeding your soil and plants. Start a small bowl for egg shells (or even ask friends to save theirs) so you can build up a stash to keep on hand.
3. Start composting.
Toss all of your kitchen scraps into a covered trash can and watch it turn into nutrient rich compost. Stir occasionally as it breaks down and then spread it out onto the soil for a tasty treat for your plants. You can toss in veggie and fruit peels, egg shells, coffee grounds, and other non-meat scraps.
