I mentioned this in another thread but i didn't fully explain it.

-Get two 5 gallon buckets that fit in each other.
-Drill lots of holes in the bottom of one.
-Weed the garden and put all the weeds into the bucket with the holes in it.
-Place the bucket into the other bucket and fill up with 2 gallons of water.
-Leave for 2 weeks then pull out the top bucket and let it drain.
-Tip the contents into the compost and bottle the fertiliser that is left over and use on tomatoes.
-Use about 1/2 litre every week in 2 gallons of water.

Any body got any other ideas of making stuff for the garden for free?

Great idea. Sounds like what us Yanks call Compost Tea.

We use Rabbit manure it can be used green right out from under the rabbits.

We put our chicken, goat and the neighbors horse manure in a compost pile and let it cure for about a year with green scraps from kitchen and brown leaves, it is too high in nitrogen and will burn your plants if you put it on directly. One of the best natural fertilizers is worm casings get a cup of red worms, a shallow container, mix in newspapers a little dirt and some kitchen greens like peelings it will take them 6-12 months but they will give you some great compost. And the best part you will have a year round supply of fishing worms. I have even seen ppl start a worm bed at work just throw in paper waste and let the worms do the work.

That bone idea is really cleaver you wouldn't waste a thing.
I guess it would work for turkey too. (with xmas coming up)

I've never heard of using rabbit droppings but that sounds pretty clever too.
