Offering or Marking?

First let me say that it's an absolute fucking miracle that I managed to start this blog when Mercury wasn't retrograde. Absolute fucking miracle.

Now, onto the stuff.

What does a witch fertilize her plants with? Nothing less than a golden shower, baby.

I had finally, after searching for weeks, procured ONE lady's mantle for the garden. Luckily she was a rather robust specimen and was split in two (how's that for magic?). I had to make sure her blessing didn't go unthanked though. What better to give than something from my own body? This method of fertilization, urine diluted with water, goes back at least to the ancient Egyptians if not farther. Urine is sterile (unless the donor has a bladder/UTI infection) and safe and nitrogen rich and keeps the larger beasties away. An offering and a territory marker in one hit. Google it if you don't believe me. Because Google is fail-safe. :P

I usually add a few strands of my hair and menstrual blood if I can get it. Since I'm breastfeeding on demand, that last ingredient is hard to come by right now. A little of Mama's milk is substituted but does not carry all the same benefits.
