Ingredients

1 gal
water
1 Tbsp
epsom salts
1 tsp
baking soda
1 Tbsp
powdered milk
1/2 tsp
ammonia
2
drops blue food coloring

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Simply mix all ingredients together, except for the powdered milk
2
Add 1 tablespoon of powdered milk to each feeding, to prevent spoilage.
3
Store labeled, in a cool, dry area within your home.

Also, I add two drops of blue food coloring, which is non-toxic for your lawn and plants, to indicate that this is a mixture which should not be consumed; the idea being that if it resembles miracle grow, and is placed in my original miracle grow concentrate containers, cross contamination or accidental injection would be limited.

Here’s the correct ratios per mixing:

Spray Bottles: Mix 1 ounce of concentrate (1/8 cup), 1 tablespoon powdered milk, with three cups water.
Manual Feedings: Mix 2 ounces of concentrate to 1 gallon water 64 ounces) of water, with 2 tablespoons of powdered milk.
For Hose Attachment Garden Feeders: Add 8 ounces (1 cup) to your feeder, add 3 tablespoons of powered milk, and water accordingly; this method feeds my entire garden, yard, and various beds for six feedings.
