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.

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 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.
I was going to post this topic on Instagram when I realized it’s too long for Insta and a proper post is needed. So, here it is.
Please note that I’ve had my fair shares of successes and failures when buying naked vegetables (without plastic packaging) from various places. Naked vegetables are far and in-between these days especially in supermarkets as most are already pre-wrapped in plastics or cling wraps. Below are some examples of my experiences.

Do you know that you can repurpose used coffee grounds? One of the ideas is to make air freshener out of it because coffee grounds are wonderful odors absorber!

Save the human, save the earth. – I have always believed in this quote. Human beings are the destroyer of the earth. It’s only when we save ourself, then only the earth can be saved. It’s cause and effect.
Why must we save ourself?
Because we are the reason the earth is sick.
Why must we care whether the earth is sick or not?
Because it will all come back to us! It’s already happening.
So, how do we save ourself?
By realizing what we have done to the environment, hence we change our attitude and lifestyle.
It’s as simple as that.
I need to change my toothbrush recently as it’s very dirty and the bristle is quite frizzy already. I also need to get a new dental floss as I’ve emptied the current one. I never realized the impact of toothbrush and dental floss on our environment until recently. Wow, both are plastic?! Gosh, I’m so blind… but not anymore.
To lessen the burden of our earth and for my well-being, I bought a bamboo toothbrush and a natural dental floss. Both are biodegradable. Yay! Once done, I can compost them.
