Using veggie & fruit peels pureed mixed with water as fertilizer.


Been mixing and feeding this puree to my fruit trees every other day and you can see the difference in the leaves and fruit production. It is a messy job but I hate to throw it out. Be surprised how much you accumulate in a couple of days. Most vitamins are in the peels. I do mix it with half water than stir it before using it. It is so hot in Florida in the summer so everything needs a boost.

Works much faster than composting the peels!

Papaya peels for fertilizer


Save all my peels from papaya & vegetables to puree for fertilizer for my fruit trees. Seem to grow healthier and seeds start new plants.

Couldn't believe how much peels came from 9 quarts of papaya's. Will mix them with banana peels for a potent blend. Tomorrow is another day to start processing them in the blender. Will keep them refrigerated so they don't get moldy.
