Using liquid organic liquid fertilizers to cure straw bales to grow veggies
I am presently using a 10-4-1 granulated grass fertilizer to prepare the straw bale for planting 36 cup overs 14 day period. Then I add a bloom 5-5-5 4, 4 cups. The bales break down and provide a great growing medium. I would like to have a higher nitrogen say 15. I recirculate the solution to “cure” the bales. The reason is the grit gets into the water supply and fouls the drip system. It’s is impossible to totally filter all of it out. I also believe that it might provide further savings We are a nonprofit that one of our goals is teaching inner city children gardening. I’m promise you I am not soliciting for a donation, just information. Hope you can help.
