Today, we are really not sure what we eat. There is GMO food, organic food, food with pesticides… and you can really never choose which “evil” to choose, or most of the time, you never really know what you actually eat!
Growing your own food can be of so much benefit! But, getting the right way to grow each plant takes time, a lot of advices and reading, and also, it costs to invest into seeds and fertilizers, such as other needed equipment.
However, do you know all the possible benefits of putting a raw egg below every root in your garden? Besides saving money on buying expensive fertilizers that are different for each vegetable or fruit type, your plants will also be healthier and organic!
Here are some extra useful tips on how to use EGGS in your gardening.
- Bury a whole egg beneath the roots of the plant. As the egg decomposes, it gives all the beneficial proteins and nutrients directly to the plant.
- You might also add just the egg-shell, because it contains calcium, nitrogen and phosphoric acid – all crucial elements for a proper and healthy plant growth
- You might also use the empty egg shells for seedling new plants
Nitrogen, phosphoric acid and also, potash are elements that are very nutritive for the plant. And they are all contained in a COFFEE BEAN! You can also decorate your plants around with dry coffee beans instead of stones and see the benefits in just a week!
WOOD ASHES raise the PH level of the soil, because of the high level of calcium carbonate and potassium. Just add your barbeque “trash” around the plants and you have an organic fertilizer and a place to put away the ashes, instead of throwing them away. Plus, it’s an excellent option if you have a fireplace in your home as well.
Last but not least of a gardening advice for today, you could re-use the leaves that fall off to make a natural compost and fertilize your plants as well!
If you don’t want to just leave them rot in your backyard and make your garden look unattended, just pile them up in bucket and put them back in the ground afterwards.Or just save the effort and let them rot, brining back all the nutrients to the ground. A perfect circle of life!
