Garrett Juice and Carmel Sauce

My favorite organic fertilizer is Garrett Juice.  It looks like this:

(I know you might be wondering, "What does this have to do with carmel sauce?" That remains tbd.) It can be found here, and maybe even at your local garden supply store.  It is completely organic, and is safe to use at any stage in planting from seed to harvest.  (With other non-organic fertilizers, you have to wait until plants are a certain age.  This one is so safe, you can use it at any time!!)  Take a look at these ingredients:

All completely pronounceable and definable.  In fact, if you are so inclined you can google this and make your own.  It takes a tiny bit mixed with water to give all of your plants a little extra nutrition.  In the weird world I live in, (aka my brain) mixing this up reminded me of making carmel sauce.  Here's what it looks like when you mix it with water...

For some strange reason, although it smells nothing like carmel sauce, it reminded me of the carmel I made not that long ago for salted carmel pretzel brownies.  Something about the bubbling and the carmel color, I don't know.  I've never claimed to make a lot of sense.

Anyone else see the resemblance?  Anyone? Bueller???  I know, readers, it's ridiculous how everything in my life relates back to food.  =) Please note, you should try the fertilizer, and you should also make those brownies.  They are delicious.  And maybe, just MAYBE, your plants will think Garrett Juice is just as delicious.  =)

(Here's the easy carmel sauce recipe I use too, should you be so inclined to make your own.)


  1. you are too much!! You are however, always a pleasant reminder that I'm not the only crazy person I know. :)

  2. Haha, now I am salivating for those brownies. Thanks a lot. ;)
