One Fish, Two Fish, Feed Your Plants Fish

One Fish, Two Fish, Feed Your Plants Fish

4 out of 5 colonists agree that planting your corn on top of a fish results in better yields.

It’s no “fish story” that the colonists learned from the Native Americans to plant their corn crops with a fish. They didn’t know why it worked, but they knew that it did.

Today, we can understand that the decay of the fish provides a nitrogen rich environment for plants, and that nitrogen is essential for leaf growth and that leaf growth is essential for plant health. Corn needs plentiful amounts of ┬ánitrogen throughout it’s entire growth cycle. This makes perfect sense when you consider a kernel the size of pea will end up being six foot tall and produce hundreds of seeds.

I use a combination of a few fish based fertilizers with results that keep me content.

It's like Magic from the Sea

I use Sea Magic on everything for many reasons.

  1. It’s inexpensive. Generally under $5 per packet each packet makes 60 gallons. That’s pretty inexpensive.
  2. You make a “tea” with it then use the “tea” as a water supplement when you want to feed.
  3. I have never had a problem with “burning” plants, even the tiniest of seedlings when I use my kelp tea.
  4. Plants love it! The proof is in the pudding. Healthy plants, huge yields and gorgeous fruits and veggies.

Sea Magic "tea" ready to go.
