STOP Throwing Away Your Banana Peels, Instead USE Them
Natural Ways
Jul 7, 2017

Human beings consume billions of bananas each year, making them one of the most popular foods in the world. However those billions of bananas we eat result in billions of banana-peels which are typically thrown away.

Did you know banana peels make one of the best fertilizers? Banana peels are a rich source of nutrients your plants crave providing potassium, phosphorus, and calcium along with a host of other minerals your plants need.

Here are 6 ways to recycle your banana-peels and never throw them away"

Mix them into a compost pile. Peels add potassium and phosphorus to compost and promote root development and overall plant health when incorporated into garden soil.

2.Brew-some compost-tea
If you don’t have a compost pile you can still use banana peels to feed your garden. Simply drop a few peels into a bucket full of water and let it sit for a couple of days to make compost “tea.” Mix one-part banana-peel compost “tea” with five-parts fresh-water and feed this mineral-rich mixture to your plants about once per-week in lieu of your normal watering. The added potassium and phosphorus will give your plants a-boost to keep them growing-strong.

3. Dried Peel Fertilizer
you can dry your banana peels and grind them into a fertilizer. If you only have a few peels to use up but want to use them effectively on many plants this is a great option. Add to your garden soil directly, either by sprinkling as a side dressing or gently incorporating into the dirt.

4.Create a banana peel sray
This spray is a fertilizer that uses eggshells for a calcium boost and Epsom Salts for magnesium. To create the fertilizer spray mix the above ingredients with water.

Dry the banana peels and eggshells.Then grind them together and fill a spray-bottle along with the Epsom Salts to the top.Spray on your plants as needed.

5.Livestock Feed
Humans are not the only ones who enjoy bananas. Livestock like chickens, rabbits, and pigs enjoy ground up dried banana peels added to their feed. Just make sure to clean the peels of any wax or pesticides before drying and offering them to pets or livestock.

And 6. Create banana peel vinegar
Blueberries and other acid loving plants will enjoy a treat of banana vinegar. Put the peels in a mason jar, and add enough water so that they’re submerged. Cover them with a cloth and a rubber-band or a loosely fitting top. Let the mixture sit for a week while the good bacteria does its job and unlocks the nutrients in the peel.
After a week remove the peels, and allow the water to sit, covered, until the mixture ferments into a vinegar. This can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks, depending on conditions such as the temperature.
If the mixture seems especially potent, dilute it with water right before using so you don’t accidentally burn your plants.
