Use Non-Fat Dry Milk To Help Your Garden Grow

put it in your garden
Would putting milk in the garden be wasteful? I know most of you don't like to waste food. Sometimes, it happens. Sometimes waste occurs inadvertently. We don't mean to waste our food bought with our hard-earned money or sweat of our brow.

Even though this tip may seem wasteful, it is not. Using milk in the garden should help your food production. Around this house, there is an abundance of instant non-fat dry milk that will never be used up even though I use it for a milk substitute in recipes all the time.

Use Non-Fat Dry Milk:
Control the aphids around the garden.
Prevent tomato diseases.
Help with storing seeds.
Cleaning houseplants.

For more information, read this.

How do I get out of this Google profile that has changed my name?

Your turn
 Have you used non-fat dry milk in your garden? Have you used it in your garden in another capacity?


  1. Okay, I think I got out of the Blogger profile thing. Let's see what name it gives me for this comment.

  2. I didn't know that about dry milk -- not that I currently have a garden, but when we lived in Maryland X and The Hurricane had a very nice garden for a couple of years. I loved the strawberries.


  3. Janie,
    I have not tried milk of any kind of plants. I do know hens love any kind of dairy product. I have strawberry seeds, so we will see how that goes.

  4. I have used milk for Powdery Mildew on the Zuchinnis. If I have powdered milk that is older than I like it is thrown over the gardens in the belief that it will add calcium to the soil.


    1. Barb,
      That is a good idea for old powdered milk. I think I have some old stuff, too. That will be put on my list of ideas.

  5. I haven't tried it, but I passed the tip along to my grandmother, who is going to try it. My brother plants a garden every year, and this year he broke his leg, so we're taking care of it.

    I get the best info from your blog!

    1. Jesshalinda,
      That's good of you all to help him. When your grandmother tries this, let me know how it works.

      Thank you so much.
