Not sure if this has been posted before but I found it very informative.  Many suggestions for ingredients and several recipes for homemade fertilizer solutions.  I'm going to try the fish emulsion one this year if I can get enough fish parts.

Thank for for sharing! There are some good ideas there.

I made fish fertilizer in barrels before - it's fantastic stuff. You can usually get fish waste if you ask around.

Now I usually take grass, weeds, urine, manure, sea water, leaf mould and Epsom salt and throw them into a drum of water to ferment for a few months, then thin it out as fertilizer.

If I have fish waste, I throw that in too.
