In my last post (yes, I do realize I haven’t written in almost 2 weeks…VACATION!!!!) I wrote about joining a Terra Cycle Brigade. So what do they do with all of those items they collect? In todays post I’m going to specifically talk about their garden collection of products. Now my garden started out really strong this spring but with the intense Florida summer heat it’s all dead until fall. I did get lots of cherry tomatos and green onions but everything else pretty much died.
With my food garden dead I’ve only tried their Garden Fertilizer (thanks Terra Cycle!!) and my hibiscus is loving it. We had an older bush and a new bush and after using the fertilizer they are both about the same size and fullness. They actually make several variations of the fertilizer and plant food; tomato plant food, orchid plant food, and lawn fertilizer. I’m excited to try the tomato plant food this fall when I try my fall garden. All of their plant foods and fertilizers are bottled using plastic soda bottles and made from worm poop!
In addition to the plant foods and fertilizers they also have rain barrels and composters made from old wine barrels and bird feeders made from used plastic soda bottles. I’ve been considering installing some rain barrels so I may try these later this year.
Where can you find the Terra Cycle Garden Collection? Locally I’ve seen some of the products at our Home Depot store. If you visit Terra Cycle you can search for stores near you that carry their products. One of the products I’ll be talking about tomorrow I found at Walgreens last week.
At the end of the weekend I’ll start my Terra Cycle giveaway!
