Ever made an organic cocktail?

An organic cocktail is so healthy for your garden and your plants will love it. A few years back we had a major flood at our home. Some idiots decided to dump a lot of cut trees and branches by the river. During one of the heavy rains the water in the river started to rise. No more than normal until all these branches and tree stumps were swallowed up by the river and started their way downstream. This broke some bridges on the way down and the water was blocked and forced over the banks. We ended up with 2 feet of stinky river mud dumped in our home and yard. The plants in the garden suffered from this mess. We did clean all the mud out of our yard but we still had problems. I decided to start making organic cocktails and feeding my plants with them. Within two weeks my plants were thriving and growing so fast. I just kept feeding them these cocktails and they loved it. Organic cocktails are easy to prepare and they don’t cost a dime. *You can use a mixture of the following to make your cocktail: *Skin from potatoes, carrots, cucumbers, turnips or other veggies you skin. *Fruit skins such as papaya, mango, start fruit, plums, peaches, or any other fruit you take the skins off of. *Rotten veggies such as tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, or what ever veggie that has gone bad. *Basically any raw fruits or veggies are perfect for this cocktail. Just remove the seeds because they will destroy your blender. *Place the raw fruit in veggies in your blender. Only half full works the best. *Add the rest with water *Mix away Now pour this wonderful cocktail around your plants. This mixture is so good for rose bushes, vegetable garden or even flower gardens. Take a look at my picture here. I just trimmed the garden 2 weeks ago because they said we might have a cyclone. The plants were way above the brick wall and I cut them down below the wall. In two weeks they have grown so much I need to trim them up again. Try this wonderful organic mixture for your garden and see the difference it makes. Your soil and plants will love this mixture and there’s no need to mulch or fertilize again.

@poehere I usually add used coffee grounds to it in small qualities.

@sofssu Yes you can do this or use your coffee ground in your potted plants. I do this a lot for potted plants.

You are welcome. Everyone here has a garden or house plants of some sort. This is perfect for all of them. Plus you save a lot of time making a compost pile in your yard. In the winter this is not even possible.

@softbabe44 I learned a lot from my work. Working in other countries really helped. I worked in many places in Mexico. I lives with the local people. Some were fishermen and some were farmers. When we had time off we would go see how they farmed. We learned from them. Here on the islands I can take all this inquired knowledge I learned over the years and try to put it to some good use. Like making this cocktail, knowing which plants to plant next to each other to control the bugs and help each other grow. Di you know certain plants feed off other plants. So if you plant a bell pepper plant next to a egg plant and grow them up together you will have better results. Why because the two different root system feed off different nutrients in the soil. What one gives back the other uses. I learned this one in Mexico. One farmer had the biggest egg plant and bell pepper I had ever seen. When you went to his garden he planted every other plant there so you had an egg plant then a bell pepper plant and then again an egg plant. He grew them up like this. Amazing I never knew this one before but I learned it from him.

You're welcome. Just keep in mind it has to be any raw veggie or fruit. They can be rotten but all seeds removed. I never use banana peel in mine but I do use lemon, lime, oranges, mango and papaya skins.

@Rosekitty Thank you so much. The one at home has taken me some time to get it the way I want it. I guess that is because I keep tearing it up and doing other stuff with it. Now I think I will leave it for awhile and I like it how it is now.

What my plants? The garden? My flowers? or the Food? I make these to give back to the soil and help the roots of the plants.

This is a great idea. We have also done this to feed our fruit trees and flowers .

This is excellent for fruit trees too. I even use the fruit that falls on the ground in these. I do remove the seeds before I put them in the blender.

Oh my. Look at this. As you might be aware, I have very recently completed coloring my flower pots and I have plans to put in some tomatoes and Cauliflower on them. And I was searching the Internet on how to get these new plants an organic booster. Definitely, this comes in as a great help at the right time. I am surely going to use it as it is so very easy and almost very easily available too. Thanks a ton for sharing this.

You're welcome. I was trying to figure out a good way to post this and I have had it on my mind for a few days now. So I first called it an organic milk shake and then changed it to an organic cocktail I thought that sounded better. The kids call it an organic milk shake and I say why there is no milk in this at all. It is just them being silly I think. Hope you like it and yes this is the simplest and easiest way to keep your plants organic.

The organic cocktail is all the stuff you would normally throw in a compost pile. This is just faster and the plants love it so much. I have been doing this for years with the best results possible. Not only my garden flowers but my organic garden too.

I do this all the time and feed it to my plants. The cocktail sits on the soil around the roots and when watered soaks into the ground and gives your plants a ton of vitamins and things it needs.

@Missmwngi Won't cost you anything. Just make sure it is raw and not cooked. Only fill your blender half full and the rest water. Take it outside and dump it around plants that need it. Works wonders. My plants are proof of this. Here is how the organic garden looks and check out some of the plants there. it helps ro grow the food quickly too.

You're welcome. I knew this would only attract people who garden but I decided to post it anyhow. This is fantastic and it really works. I use to make a compost pile now I use this instead. So much easier to do. Produces great results. Take a look at our organic garden.

Thanks, good garden tips! I will try this organic mixture on my tomato plants next spring time.

It is so good for them. If you are planting tomatoes make sure you plant a lot of marigold flowers around them. This keeps the bugs away from your tomatoes.

Sounds like "compost tea." I guess you're just speeding up the process with your blender.

It's a lot faster. May 1/2 blender full of peeling or what ever and half water. Blend on high for about 3 to 5 minutes. Take out and dump around your plants. They will love you for this. When you water it soaks this into the ground. I find out rich my soil is now because of this.
