Make Your Own Organic Liquid Fertilizer

Originally shared at 

Before I give you my recipe I need to be very clear.  ALFALFA is considered a "high risk crop."  This means that Alfalfa is on of the top 10 Genetically Modified plants in the US.  

From the Non-GMO Project,
High-Risk Crops (in commercial production; ingredients derived from these must be tested every time prior to use in Non-GMO Project Verified products (as of December 2011):

  • Alfalfa (first planting 2011)
  • Canola (approx. 90% of U.S. crop)
  • Corn (approx. 88% of U.S. crop in 2011)
  • Cotton (approx. 90% of U.S. crop in 2011)
  • Papaya (most of Hawaiian crop; approximately 988 acres)
  • Soy (approx. 94% of U.S. crop in 2011)
  • Sugar Beets (approx. 95% of U.S. crop in 2010)
  • Zucchini and Yellow Summer Squash (approx. 25,000 acres)

 


This is why I chose to offer Certified Organic, Non-GMO Alfalfa Meal at Mary's Heirloom Seeds.  It wasn't easy to find and it certainly wasn't cheap.  Non-GMO is the way to go!!!


Making a Liquid fertilizer is pretty easy.  I used make Seaweed tea every year but not everyone has access to seaweed.  Now I make Alfalfa Tea.

It's also important to mention that while I call it "TEA,"  I DO NOT DRINK IT!  
Just need to clear that up.
