a few thoughts.

you know those little packets of ketchup, mustard, syrup and hot sauce you have been throwing away.

in my gallon jug of whatever, mainly fish fertilizer, coffee and beer, makes a mix that is potent. putting it around the plants lightly once a week is too much. some plants say OUCH, but not all. i have never over fertilized my bananas before. holes in leaves on some, a little brown edging on the leaves on some, but all in all they have not been hurt. i just slacked off for a month.

the difference between not fertilizing last year and heavy fertilizing this year is a world of difference. my plants this year have jumped remarkably.

i would guess like banana leaves not much. unless you make ash of them, banana leaves [ash] is 1.75/ 0.75/.05

Every little bit helps I suppose especially if it attracts bugs and worms to help compost. I have tons of pill bugs in my yard and around my nanners.

i opened a steel can of olives last night, looked at it and said i wonder.

i found out if you fill the steel can with compost and bury it upright it will give your plant water and as it rusts...iron. i guess those steel cans will not make it to the garbage anymore.

i have also learned that straight coffee out of the pot is a no-no. you have to water it down to a very weak tea.

Make sure your tetanus shot is up to date before you put all those rusty cans in your yard. LOL.

i have found with all the ingredients you put in a milk jug tends to be a bit strong for fertilizing. and forget the beer, its pretty much worthless.

once you get a gallon milk jug filled, pour it in a 5 gallon bucket and fill it with water. then pour it around your plants,
