Faina de oase este principala sursa de fosfor, pe care o putem folosi la plantele din gradina noastra. Fiind niste gradinari ce folosim metode “primitive” si, daca se poate sa folosim materiale si ingrediente din casa sau curtea noastra, am ajuns sa invatam cum sa ne producem propria faina de oase. Deocamdata in cantitati mici, dar odata ce vom stapanim metoda, vom progresa.

Am folosit numai oase de pasare, din efectivul din dotare.

Faina de oase – Cum se face

  • Oasele ramase de la mesele in familie, se curata cat se poate de bine de carnea si cartilagiile de pe ele. In cazul in care se folosesc oase negatite, ex. pieptul de pui ramas de la dezosat, se fierb in apa   pana se curata bine resturile de carne de pe ele.
  • Odata curatate, se pun la uscat. Noi le-am pus in cutii, pe calorifere.
  • Se lasa la uscat 1-2 luni, pana ce oasele devin casante
  • Oasele uscate bine, se sparg la inceput cu un ciocan. Se “impacheteaza” in hartie pentru a nu pierde din cioburi cand dam cu ciocanul.

  • Asa vor arata dupa ce dam de cateva ori in ele.

  • Cioburile de oase se maruntesc apoi intr-un robotel de cafea. In el am incercat noi, probabil cand este cantitate mare, se poate folosi si un robot mai mare sau blender.

In general, se folosesc 1-2 linguri la 10 kg de pamant sau pana la 0,5 kg pe metru patrat, in straturile din gradina, si lucrul acesta se face primavara. Trebuie verificat pH-ul solului, inainte de a aplica. Daca este peste 7, se ajusteaza inainte de a adauga faina de oase.

In amestecul de pamant pentru rasadurile de rosii, se pune 1 cana la 50 kg de pamant.


Homemade Bone meal

Bone meal is the main source of phosphorus that we can use with plants in our garden. Since we’re gardners who only use primitive methods, and, if possible, materials and ingredients solely from our yard, we’ve got to the point when we have to learn how to do our own bone meal. In small quantities, for now, but once we will master the method, we will progress. I have used only bird bones, from my own grown chicken.

Bone Meal – How to do it

  • The bone remanants from family dinners should have meat and cartilage cleaned off them as well as possible.
  • When using uncooked bones (i.e. chicken breast bones), you have to boil them until meat is cleaned off. Once cleaned, leave them to dry, until they can break.
  • Bones well dried are first smashed with a hammer. You wrap them in paper so you don’t lose any parts of them when hitting them with the hammer. This is how they look once you hit them few times.
  • Bone fragments are then grinded in a coffee grinder. Or at least that’s what we’ve tried. When the quantity of bones is larger, you can use a bigger grinder / blender.
  • This is how bone meal looks once mixed and ready to be poured in the soil mix for the sprouts or directly into the garden soil.
  • Generally, you you 1-2 spoons of bone meal for each 10 kilograms of soil or up to 0.5 kilograms per square meter, in garden beds, and this should be done during spring.
  • You have to check the soil’s pH before pouring the bone meal – if it’s over 7, you adjust it before puring it.
