Yep, I just did this and I hope it works.

Use nonfat dry milk to help your garden grow: Control the aphids around your garden

Mix some nonfat dry milk with some water according to the instruction on the box to the amount you will need. Take the mixture and pour into a clean spray bottle. Spray the infected plants with the mixture, this mixture will form a milky residue on the leaves of the plants when it dries, and the aphids get stuck on the leaves and die

Note: The milk is good to add calcium to your garden as well...place 2 inches down around your plant roots. I mixed the milk with some clean-crushed egg shells. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I use soured milk to spray on and "feed" with. GREAT bacteria infusion if a tad smelly for a few hours until it dries.

The spray recipe sounds a lot like what is described on this site but recommended for powdery mildew... didn't realize you could use it as foliar feed. Good to know .

From reading posts on tomatoes here, I added a tbspn of powdered milk & epsom salts to the base of each plant last week before the rains came. I think it was quiltbea who mentioned she added these proportions in the holes before transplanting. I figured I'd give it a try now and hope the rain drenches it in.

But.... I read that ground eggshells take a long long time to break down and get to the roots of the plants.... I'll have to look up where I read that

Cheers

I used Epsom Salt too after I planted all my maters as a side dressing.

Yes, egg shells do take time to break down into organic matter--slow process.
