This special seasonal Fermented Plant Extract of Watermelon is made with love on a small farm near Paonia Colorado using natural probiotic farming practices. This farm has been operating under the direction of Miles Filippelli since 2016 for the purpose of producing high quality plant inputs for BuildASoil and the Fermented Plant Extracts product line. Lactobacillus bacteria are saprophytes, meaning they are decomposers, they break down organic matter. This trait is harnessed in the production of Fermented Plant Extracts where lactobacillus are fed specific nutrient dense food sources for the purpose of breaking down plant compounds and extracting them into a liquid form.

Derived From: Clean Mountain Water, Watermelon, molasses, sorghum syrup, Lactic Acid Bacteria sourced from local goat whey, and EM-1. This is then fermented until the plant matter is digested and extracted into the liquid and the sugars are consumed by the microbes to lock in the PH for stability and ease of use in the garden.

Why Use?
This particular Fermented Plant Extract is made from watermelons. Watermelon
Fermented Plant Extract is designed for all stages of growth, especially bloom. The
large seed bearing fruiting body of watermelon is rich in nutrients including vitamin C, B,
magnesium and calcium.

Lactobacillus varieties are:
Saprophytic - they break down organic matter and generally do not harm living things.
Antipathogenic - they are effective and beneficial microbes that outcompete and
overcome “the bad guys,” or pathogenic microbes.
Ubiquitous - they are everywhere!
Facultative - surviving in both aerobic and anaerobic environments.
Microaerophilic - preferring environments with less oxygen than typical environmental air similar to conditions in soil.
Rod shaped - bacillus means “wand” or “small staff”- the “magic wand” because
fermentation has an alchemical nature of transmuting raw materials into more nutritious
valuable preparations.

Heterofermentative - translates to producing a variety of outputs including nutrients,
CO2, yeasts, acids, and carbohydrates, which plants crave.

Fermentation <> Putrefaction

As a lifelong student/practitioner of fermentation I'd suggest that this is, in fact, Putrefied Watermelon Extract. If you were thinking a FFJ/FPJ, don't. If you're thinking of a typical temp controlled LAB + plant matter ferment, don't. This is closer to a flyblown JLF that spent weeks in the sun, uncovered. If Watermelon Grease Trap is what you're looking for, you're in luck. I can't see using this, myself.
