Re: What are some environmentally safe pesticides and fertilizers?
"Tobacco water" got rid of aphids in my tomatoes.
Bottles with a little bit of orange juice inside and a small hole ended fruit flies in my orange trees.

Tobacco water:
100ml of alcohol with 10g of minced tobacco. Let it rest for 24 hours.
100ml of water with also 10g of red pepper. Warm the water, grind the pepper and put them in the water, also, let it rest for 24 to 36 hours.
About 16g of coconut soap, melt it in warm water.

Sieve it all and mix. This is the base of it, mix with up to 3 liters of water and spray it directly in the plants leaves.

If you need bigger amounts, make the recipe with the same proportions.

Some natural bacteria can kill certain garden pests. Also Pyrethrum whoch is made from the Chrysanthemum flower is a natural pesticide. Cow and horse manure is the best fertilizer but it should be tilled in the soil many months before planting.

deterrents means like deal with the pests as they come, without chems.

for deer, use hair clippings and other methods.

for bugs, dawn soap, peroxide, diatomaceous earth, salt... fine, but no pesticides man.

I bought some land and I'm building a perma-home there. Pretty close to get fully independent in there. In one or two years, I'll move there and never come back.

 Quoting: StrongLion


Totally! Allow me to describe what I got done already:
The land is around 10 acres. Parts of plain land, parts with some elevations. Lots of native Atlantic forest.
There is a medium sized creek. From it, I dug a "trench" canalizing the water to a small hydro generator. It generates around 3Kwa/hour, more than enough for like 4 regular houses. I still need to make some safety circuits and a better inverter, but its already usable. The river runs the whole year with not much of a difference in the flow, so power is guaranteed.
I built 6 greenhouses 6x30 meters. Inside them, still building aquaponics systems. This part needs a lot of work yet, but I'll get there, I got only one working fully.
I raise, chickens and bought a miniature cow that, believe it or not, produces milk. Around 1 and a half gallon/day, but I don't need more than that. There's also a small pond where the ducks and geese love to hang out and I got some tilapia growing in there.
There is plenty of land for crops. For now, I got cassava, corn and sugar cane growing in permaculture(harvest some, plant it back).
Lots(really LOTS) of fruit trees. I could go live there right now if I really wanted or needed and I would be somewhat ok, but I still need some money to finish the barn, build bigger chicken coup, buy a bigger tractor and its implements, plain some more land for rice crops and various tools/machinery.

As soon as I got it all, you'll not be seeing me here so much(maybe never again, which some will like)
