DIY Bone, Prawn & Fish Meal Blend Fertilizer

In December last year, I experimented with making homemade bone meal fertilizer. Today, I’m going to share with you the methods to make bone, prawn (shrimp) and fish meal blend fertilizer. If you have several types of bones and shells, you can make them together and form a blend like what I did. Of course, you can also make them individually. The methods are the same.

Life is beautiful.

Bone Meal Experiment

I once buried the leftover bones from bone broth making into my garden. I had attempted at making my own bone meal but failed because the pork bones were just too tough and strong. I never find out what happened to the buried bones, but I never saw them again despite digging up the area for planting after a couple of months later. So, I guess they’ve composted.

Bone Meal Experiment

Bone meal is the dried and ground powder form of animal bones. It contains a good amount of phosphorus and calcium and is a wonderful fertilizer for the plants.

Vitamins For My Plants

What do you feed your plants? Besides sunshine, water, air and love that is. 🌞πŸ₯€πŸŒ¬οΈπŸ’•

I used to feed my plants with store-bought fertilizers but not anymore. FYI, the ones I used were organic and non-organic kinds. I always find store-bought fertilizers come with an extremely strong chemical smell. So it makes me wonder whether I should keep using these chemical-laden fertilizers? My instinct said no. And so, I ditched the store-bought fertilizers including store-bought animal’s manure (the manure smells like manure though) 2 years+ ago. From then on I make my own vitamins to supplement my plants. I prefer to call it vitamins instead of fertilizers though.

3 Easy Compost Systems

About two+ CNYs ago, I finally said to myself “What the he!!, I can’t wait anymore. I’ll just start now.” I’m talking about composting.

My first composting experience was way-way back, and since then I have been waiting for the right time to start again. As I work on my 2nd composting project, I realized I needn’t any special equipment or location after all. It has always been there. All I need is to just start and the path will show its way. I’m so grateful that I followed the voice inside me because it has been wonderful so far.

Materials For Compost

Over time, I began experimenting with other composting methods. I didn’t start all at once when I began. It was in stages and unplanned. I just thought it might be good to try other techniques. So far, I’m using 3 compost systems without spending any money!
