How to make liquid manure

You can make liquid manures quite economically in the home garden. The best container is a large drum which can be placed close to the vegetable garden.

Place into the drum approximately two buckets of either cow, chicken or horse manure. Add a few handfuls of comfrey and some leaves of stinging nettles, if they're available. Wear gloves to handle these. Top up the drum with water and mix it all well. Leave the mixture for four to six weeks before using it. The mixture will smell quite unpleasant for the first two to three weeks so make sure it's not too near the house!

When it's ready to use, it should only have a slight smell. Use it diluted on young seedlings to give them a boost along or on any weak or spindly plants. This method of feeding plants should only be used as a periodic growth booster. If you use it excessively it will create unhealthy growth.

Harvesting and preserving vegetables

Growing vegetables and harvesting them fresh from the garden is a great way to help keep your family healthy and happy. However, a lot depends on how you store and prepare these foods because under adverse conditions they can lose up to ten percent of their minerals and vitamins on their way to the table. Fresh vegetables lose one quarter of their vitamin C content when left in the refrigerator for just a day, and up to one half in five days.

Try to arrange for successions of plantings at ten day intervals to ensure a continuous supply. Doing this will help you to eat more of your garden-fresh foods within minutes or hours of harvesting.
