How do I make Garrett Juice? What are it's applications?

Also where would I buydiatomaceous earth to mix in my dog and cat's food?

From the Dirt Doctor's Info Center:

Garrett Juice (ready to spray)
My recommended basic organic foliar spray is available commercially. Or you can make your own. Mix the following ingredients in a gallon of water.

1 cup manure based compost tea
1 ounce molasses
1 ounce natural apple cider vinegar
1 ounce liquid seaweed
For disease and insect control add:
¼ cup garlic tea or
¼ cup garlic/pepper tea
or 1 ounce of orange oil

It can be used as a foliar feed for one. Unless I have insect problems, I omit the garlic or garlic/pepper tea and reduce the orange oil or omit it completely also.

Diatomaceous earth can be purchased at most of the organic gardening stores and at some feed stores.

Please make sure you get "food grade" DE (diatomaceous earth). Have you tried Muenster Natural Dog and Cat Foods? These products already contain the right amount of DE.

Do not use the DE they sell for swimming pools, as it contains chlorine.
