Brix Update – Kays Garden Blog – 8 Dec

I Did It!!!

I’m feeling a lot better now. For a few weeks I was very nervous that my garden wouldn’t grow or my veges would be super low BRIX. I’m very excited to be able to tell you that my garden not only looks amazing but that things are growing really well and the BRIX levels are pretty good and going up.

My Calphos put the BRIX up 1 point when applied sparingly with a watering can and my Kay’s Liquid Gold has also helped me keep the BRIX up and plants growing well.

I am most impressed with the urine charged biochar however it only works super well from day 1 when it is ground quite fine rather than being in big chunks. All of the plants that I have planted into finely ground charged biochar have not looked back from day 1. They have grown consistently and fast…. Faster than I have seen before in my garden using anything else. My fear was that the growth would be low BRIX growth pushed by the nitrates in the urine… however there is more in urine than nitrates .. and the BRIX of those plants is up so I’m getting more confident that we can do it without the fertiliser, actually I’m very excited. I knew it had to be possible, but I have never done it and i don’t know any body else doing it and most businesses supporting people to grow nutrient dense food tell you not to do it! All the consultants say whatever you do don’t use leaves and compost and manure etc. I know we can now it just takes an understanding of how to use them and organic books do not have it right as far as I can see.

I suggest my Art of Composting Booklet as a first step, or perhaps How to Grow Nutrient Dense Food or if you are super keen to understand the science of it all Nourishment Home Grown is the book for you
