i'm putting this in Survival because it relates to gardening and self-sufficiency. if it is to be moved to a different category, so be it.
I received an email from the head of one of the largest guano importers in the US stating that Peru isn't exporting any guano until fall at the
earliest due to political wheel-turnings going on there.
if you don't know about PSG and you make your own compost teas to feed your plants then you might be missing out....10-10-2 : N-P-K ratio i believe
and being organic will not burn (over-fertilize) your plants.
my compost tea recipes ( 5 gallon bucket with an aquarium air pump, tube and air stone bubbling for 48 hours)
plants less than a month old:
per 5 gallons of water- 1 cup earthworm castings, 5 tablespoons molasses, 2 teaspoon myccorhizae
for growing plants (not yet producing fruits or veggies)
per 5 gallons of water-
1/3 cup EACH earthworm castings, peruvian seabird guano, mexican bat guano during growth and then indonesian during fruiting or flowering.
5 tablespoons molasses
5 to 25 teaspoons powdered kelp (apergilis [sp?])
2 teaspoons myccorhizae (endomycco unless you're growing pine trees or oaks, then add endo and ecto)
2 teaspoons rock phosphate
used with every 3rd watering
and for flowering/fruiting plants- again for 5 gallons of water you use the same amounts as above except the EWC, PSG, and you start using Indonesian
here- guanos all are 2/3 cup EACH and this tea is used every watering.
