How to make Organic Pesticide – Neemastra

Hello everyone! I know this has been bothering you for quite a while now. Let me share a quick, easy and effective way to make your own pesticide.

This method was initially shared by Dr. Subhash Palekar Sir in his Zero Budget Natural Farming (ZBNF) later on renamed as Subhash Palekar Natural Farming (SPNF). If you would like to visit his site for a more detailed information, you can click here.

You’ll need just 3 ingredients

  1. Cow Dung (Gobar) – 200gms
  2. Cow Urine (Gaumutra) – 1 litre
  3. Neem Leaves (along with twigs) – 1kg

This is to give an idea of proportion. You can make as much as you need depending on the number of plants in your Garden. You can also use this on your farm.

Now in a bucket or drum – mix all the ingredients. Crush the neem leaves before adding them. Add 20 lires of water and mix well.

Keep it closed and in shade for 3 days. Mix it/stir it everyday.

After 3 days – strain it. Use it directly without diluting it any further. Fill it in a spray bottle and apply/spray it on the plants.

You can store the solution for 6 months.

Happy Gardening! 🙂

5 Hard Truths about Gardening

If you are just starting your Garden or you have been Gardening for quite sometime now, there are few truths about Gardening that I want you all to know about:

  1. Plants die: Yes, Plants die. Sometimes its your fault and sometimes, its not. I always try to explain in my Gardening Workshops – the reasons that could have caused a plant’s death. The fact is sometimes there is no reason. Plants are living beings and they die after sometime.
  2. You won’t always get expected/desired results: This is true especially with kitchen Gardening. There are so many things that can go wrong. Sometimes the seeds don’t germinate. Sometimes the plants lack nutrition, sometimes its the sunlight and other times the pollination and above all wrong season or unexpected rainfall…. Things happen! So long as we enjoy process and are not focused only on the results, we are good to go!
  3. Your Garden won’t always look like an Instagram/Pinterest Pic: Yes, you read it right. There are days when your Garden looks no less than a heaven.. the perfect beauty … But then there are days where there are no flowers.. No fruits… The leaves are yellow…
  4. You’ll make mistakes: No matter how long you have been Gardening.. You will make mistakes.
  5. Nothing called “NO MAINTENANCE”: While I can agree on the term “low maintenance”, there is nothing called “no maintenance”. If its your plant, you got to take care of it.
