Depends, if you wanna have the most efficient fastest release of nitrogen and other nutrients plants love then you can make fish emulsion.Paul Foot wrote:If burying in the garden, do people bury them whole, cut them into pieces, put them in the blender etc...?
Personally, I opt to bury the beast whole rather then dealing with the smell of cutting them up.
To make Carp Emulsion
1. Catch a carp
2. Cut up and disembowel Carp
3. Get some leaves/seaweed
4. Get a bucket/barrel
5. Now put equal parts of organic matter (leaves/seaweed) and your cut up carp (guts and all) into bucket until your bucket is 2/3 filled.
Your bucket should now contain 1/3 part Leaves/Seaweed and 1/3 part Carp mixed together
6. Add a little sugar a tablespoon or so to the mix (optional)
7. Pour non-chlorinated water into bucket and fill until all your contents are covered. Do not not fill to the brim. Leave a couple inches of space between th e water and the lid.
8. Seal lid
9. Every day or so remove lid from bucket for a moment to release gases and stir the mix (otherwise it could explode due to pressure.
10. After a month or so your contents in the bucket have rotted.
11. You now have Carp Emulsion full of nitrogen which is great for leafy growth in plants.
12. Seperate the liquid concentrate (what was once water) from the contents in the bucket (optional)
13. When you ready to use your Carp Emulsion of your plants dilute you concentrate in water like cordial and pour on the soil around your plants.
If you cant be f****d doing all that then yeh just bury bits of ur carp under the soil near the roots of your plants. It is no where near as beneficial for the health and growth of your chosen plants as the Carp Emulsion is.
