128 oz. Fish Emulsion = $17.99
1 gal. Hi-Yield Liquid Iron = $16.99
32 oz. Bonide Insecticidal Soap = $15.99
4 lbs. Dipel Dust = $3.99
4 lbs. Kelp Meal = $17.99
I can see why only Co-Op can afford to carry Organic products.
BTW, Kelp Meal is 3 lbs per 100 sq. ft. @ aprox. $12.75 per 3 lbs multiplied
by 10 = aprox $127.50 just for Kelp meal for a small veggie garden. That's
just for the Kelp. Shocking! That's a lot of money for a 1000 sq. ft garden
if you're on a limited income (retired, disabled etc). Looking at some of
the figures the man at the Co-Op gave us, it's much much cheaper to buy
veggies at the local store or Farmer's Market. Apparently that's why no one
buys organic fertilizers and the local stores don't sell it. The blood meal
was unaffordable so I picked up ammonium nitrate as per the soil test.
I bought one the one bag of Kelp meal to try with some peppers and tomatoes
kept over in the greenhouse this winter and outside next spring. But there
is no way we can do this with the larger gardens we plan to have next year.
Have you figured out the cost for a 1,500 sq. ft. garden? Nothing
economical about it. Humic acid is provided by the free compost we add
every year. The fish emulsion is supposed to supply micronutrients.
I know what you mean. That's some GOOD stuff. When I kept dairy goats and
chickens I always had several piles of manure in different stages of
composting and no close neighbors to complain. Steam would be coming off
them on cold days. :-)
Actually, the wild ones were. <g>
I can differentiate.
Taste kinda like Venison... not chicken!
I gave away the two tame pairs.
The tastiest emu were the young ones roasted or smoked whole, skin on at
about 16 to 32 weeks. Plenty wild when I let daddy bird set the nest and
raise the young.
In emus, the female just lays the eggs. The rooster does all the work.

Specifics? I don't understand. ?!??! I can't find most of these products
(fish emulsion, Dipel) locally anymore. We had to drive to a Farmer's Co-Op
about 30 miles from here. They still have a section of organic insecticides
and fertilizers. We did have to switch from blood meal for nitrogen to
