They are so adaptable I am almost willing to say that they are a step ahead of us in the environment game....on that note, shall we next urinate on them after a heavy night drinking tropical cocktails while they assist us in cleaning our gulf? I know I shouldn't have but I had to.
    Yeah that would do it, it would help if you are also diabetic LOL hehe

    Wow, this is an interesting thread. I'm not even sure how I found it.

    Does anyone use beer, vodka or honey in their fertilizer routine?

    I know one nursery here use yeast , sugar and water (recipe to make beer) as fertilizer. They leave it overnight before using while for beer gotta be fermented longer.

    I think I figured out how I found it. It was a poll that came up. The old polls rotate it seems. They are fun to read.

    I had a good laugh going through this thread again. BTW I don't use beer any more as my free supply of beer is not available any more and I don't drink beer myself.
