Gardening vegetarians and vegans: what sort of fertilizer do you use?

I’m new to gardening and I’m using liquid seaweed for my tomatoes.

People at the gardening centers have been telling me I won’t get awesome tomatoes without using blood meal/bone meal.

Have you used seaweed? What do you use?
I would really love to be composting, but I live in a one-room apartment that’s smaller than my childhood bedroom. I’m trying to garden on my huge, south-facing windowsill. We’ll see how it goes.

I’m Vegan. I grow cabbages, peas, carrots, corn, tomatoes and butternut squash and I use NO fertillizer what so ever.

  1. There are many organic fertilizers. If this is the direction you are headed you should be composting, to make your own soil amendment, and disposing of your waste correctly.

  2. All I use is homemade compost. My roses love coffee grounds, and the herb garden likes banana peels. For apartments, a good composting alternative is a second hand blender. Just put in food waste and water, blend, and pour on soil. It works great!

    For tomatoes I just kept the bed free of weeds, the soil at the right ph level, and made sure they were trellised to keep the fruit off of the ground.
    (I can’t grow tomatoes where we live now. It’s much too hot.)
