It's almost the July 4th holiday.......a time for the gathering of family, friends
and the table full of wonderful foods. Especially banana pudding and banana bread.
This is one of my most requested desserts and recipes You can find it here at this link to my cooking blog Cream Cheese Banana Nut Bread with Orange Pecan Topping
But what do you do with all of those banana peels and eggs shells??
Don't throw them away!
They are full of wonderful things to make your garden blossom in brilliant colors.
Banana Peels contain
Potassium (Contains 42% when dried)
All the things that make your plants happy and healthy!
By adding a few egg shells and Epsom Salt .......
you can make a cheap and chemical free fertilizer spray.
Here is the recipe:
Banana Peel Plant Fertilizer Spray
4 Banana Peels
1 tablespoon Epsom Salt
3 Egg Shells
Lay banana peels and egg shells on a tray and place them in a place where they will dry out completely.
After they are completely dry, place shells and peels into blender and pulse until they are a fine powder.
Add the shell/peel powder and the Epsom salts to a large spray bottle.
Add water to the bottle and stir or shake the contents until all is dissolved and mixed well.
because this is a fertilizer spray, don't use too much at one time or you could burn your plants.
Do not spray directly onto plants that are in full sunlight, spray into the soil around the plants.
As in all things, test carefully with each different plant to adjust to each individual need.
I found this recipe a little while back and so far my plants have been happy with it.
Best of all it is non toxic to the environment..
