CCVC is clearing all the stockpiled seagrass off the beach, anyone who needs some please visit the village council office. Note that we are not selling seagrass only giving it away!!!

GOOD - I found instructions on how to turn sea grass into fertilizer. Instructions called for filling a 50 gallon drum with sea grass; covering it with water and letting it sit for 2 months. Then you can take off 1 cup of liquid and add to 1 gallon of water and feed your plants.
I'm going to try it in a 5 gallon bucket.

Salt in seagrass can kill your plants uness you wash it out first. We did this many times at the Nature Reserve.
This is hard to do so sometimes we got good results and sometimes we killed everything.
We stopped using it.

I understand that. Does the salt 'settle out' if it sits long enough?

I know that fresh water sits on top of salt water - does this happen to stored water?

Salt water will not "settle out"; fresh and salt water will always seek to "homogenize" if you will.

Bear, your answer is both right and wrong. Salt water being denser will always settle out at the bottom and fresh water will float on it like many wells in San Pedro.

Now if you contain this water the salt water will eventually "homogenize". Stirring and heating the water will make this happen quicker.

Harriette, I'm not sure just how what I just said applies to your application so don't be mad at me if your plants die from using the sea grass. wink I don't want to get the finger when I drive by. laugh

ps It seems to me if the sea grass was arranged is such a way that the rain rinsed it or your container was emptied on occasion the fresh water would eventually rinse the salt out of the sea grass. The soaking in fresh water would help. A way to drain the water off the bottom would also help, so as not to reintroduce the salt to the sea grass. I'm kind of winging it here.

ps ps I'll be down soon, wouldn't it be easier if I brought you down some "Miracle Grow" for you? smile

Thanks Jim. Please do bring your lovely wife and Zeek and don't just wave but stop in.

I am trying to live as GREEN as possible and making use of all that Mother Nature is providing and fewer chemicals. Just wait until you see what all I am doing to incorporate this into my building.
