Any organic vegetable growers?
    #3776504 - 02/14/05 12:26 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I'm trying my hand at growing a few vegetables organically this year, tomatoes and yellow bell peppers for sure, and maybe some other things. I'm curious as to what you guys use to ferilize your plants, other than using good compost and manure. I'm familiar with using fish emulsions, but it's really only a good source of nitrogen. Any other recommendations?

Good easy crops are melons, cucumbers, beans(green bush beans), tomatoes, summer squash, zuchini, eggplant, basil, parsley, garlic to name a few. I am an organic gardener, and I would suggest you research a few composting bin models and get a feel for what is right for you. Compost is invaluable to the organic gardener, so let nothing go to waste. Fish fertilizer is an excellent food source, but you are right in saying that it contains no other essentials. Earth Juice Grow, Bloom and Catalyst are what I use. They are 100% organic and have given me the best results of any fert I have used. Can usually be purchased at hydroponic shops, but is great for everyday gardening. Fish ferts are however very effective, so still use those. Bloom and Catalyst provide other nutrients and such to balance out the plant. Use things like green sand and garden gypsum to losen your soil and provide good secondary nutrients, like sulphur and calcium. Worm castings are also incredible organic fertlizers. Good luck!

Look into worm farming, worm castings are an excellent organic fert which never burns the plants.

I have 4 compost bins which I put in lawn clippings, food scraps and spent crops. If your garden has worms this should be all the fertiliser you ever need.
