So you run to the store and purchase their suggested ingredients and yes, it makes a good fertilizer, though you may be spending near what you would pay if you purchased ready-made fertilizer.

You can, however, follow our simple recipe for homemade garden fertilizer and not have to spend any extra money. We make our fertilizer for little cost and it works great! Our garden fertilizer is from sardines.

Benefits of Sardines for Health and Fertlizer

If you’re not eating sardines yet, you may be missing out on one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids and other important minerals, not to mention the taste is terrific! We’ve switched to canned sardines from tuna because of the reports we’ve read about smaller fish holding less toxins than large fish.

Sardines are very low on the food chain and eat mostly plankton. Their small bodies process their food quickly, because they have a higher metabolism, eliminating any significant amount of mercury or other toxins they may have ingested. Larger fish, like tuna and salmon, digest smaller fish they consume slower, allowing toxins to accumulate and concentrate in their organs and meat, later to be ingested by humans.
