Fertilizer for Vegetable Garden

Homemade Recipe For Vegetable Garden Fertilizer

Use shears or scissors to chop kelp, nettles, parsley and dandelion leaves into 2-inch pieces. Be particularly careful with the nettles, because they will burn your skin if it comes into direct contact with them. Place the chopped greens into a bucket. You want to have enough to fill about one-fifth of the bucket. Stir the water and greenery to mix and agitate. You can discard the greens or add them to your compost pile, if you have one.
