    I just started using Neptune Harvest I got from Amazon. I will let you all
    know how it works for me.

    Great videos, just thought id put in my 2 cents. That Alaska brand
    fertilizer is not truly "organic" anymore OMRI revoked the certification
    due to added chemicals. Also another awesome liquid fert to try is a
    Hydrolized fish solution instead of emulsion. It’s a better quality fish
    that is cold pressed instead of chemically processed like the Alaska brand.
    Just thought you’d want to try it out, Neptune harvest makes a great
    Hydrolized fish fert.

    I havent used it on cucumbers. I dont have any advice. I think if that was
    a risk we would have heard about it. Any other issues on other crops.
    Cucumbers can look great and turn quick. I cant see what would cause this
    in fish emulsion. Ill look around and let you know if I find anything.

  7. Gayle Siler

    Thanks for the great videos. Quick question. Have you had anyone say they
    had plants that didn’t seem to like fish emulsion? I (think) I have that
    problem with my cucumbers. The summer crop as well as this falls crop ( I
    live in zone 8b) started doing poorly only after I applied fish emulsion.
    They were doing good, big nice leaves and flowers. Then when I fertilized
    with fish emulsion, they started going down hill. Yellowing leaves and mild
    shriveling of the leaves. Any advice on this?

  8. Gary Pilarchik

    That is a good idea. That is what I hope to make.

    containers, I would go every 2 weeks.

    We are now going into the vinter season, and snow is just around the
    corner. This last week we`ve had continously frost nights. I`ll still be
    posting growing videos thow, since I use a grow room in winter. I`ll also
    be growing in a up heated green house, as long as the temperature don`t
    sink to low outside. Cheers, Halvor.

    Most of it gets sucked out by the plants. Tomatoes use what is there
    quickly as do most plants. You often have to revitalize your container soil
    each year. Break up the roots, add organic matter and new starter
