The Mittleider Weekly Feed, adds the essential mineral nutrients your garden needs to stay healthy a produce a good harvest.

Because we buy a 50 lb bag of 16-16-16 fertilizer, we double our recipe and use:

Fertilizer 16-16-16 – 50 lb
Epsom Salt –
Two 4 lb bags
Mittleider Micro-Mix –
2 bags

The fertilizer contains 16% nitrogen, 16% phosphorus, and 16% potassium. If you can’t find the mixture we use, you can use a ratio between 13-13-13 to 17-17-17.

Epsom Salt
Has magnesium and sulfur, which is important for the health and growth of your plant. It also enhances green color.

Mittleider Micro-Mix
It’s all natural minerals and nutrients from the earth.


The fertilizer is used once a week. This will last a long time depending on the size of your garden. I store it in my garage in 5 gallon buckets. I like this because it’s clean and I can save it as part of my food storage. My goal is to have enough backup stored so I can garden for 3-5 years.
