I am trying to make an effective microbe mixture (DIY EM-1) for fruit tree spraying. But I need blackstrap molasses for the last part of the process and can't find it!
Anyone have any tips on how to find this?
I took a moment just now and looked online and found that Mother Hubbard's IS blackstrap and carried at my grocery store! Thanks!
I watched a couple youTube videos to learn how to make the EM-1 - first you use the water from rinsing rice (starchy), then you add milk and allow it to set for a while (couple of weeks maybe). Is mycoplasm what you would call the product after removing the solids? I heard them call it lactobacillus. I have a couple gallons of that waiting in the fridge. I need the blackstrap molasses and another fermentation session to finish this up.
I also would like some litmus paper to be sure it's the proper pH. Do you know where that could be found? I have a soil pH tester, but it says it shouldn't be used for liquids. Any thoughts on that?
It seems I'm talking to the right person! - thanks so much for your replies...
