Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

I want to make 12 quarts of organic fertilizer, but do not know how! Here is the recipe:

4 parts cottonseed meal
1/4 part agricultural lime
1/4 part gypsum
1/2 part dolomite
1 part bone meal
1 part kelp

Please help me convert to cups, pints, and quarts! I cannot figure this out!

If you add all the parts, you get 7 parts total. So if a part is 1 cup, you get 7 cups. If it is 1 qt, you get 7 qts, and so on. To avoid messy fractions, I'd set 1 part = 2 quarts, and make 14 quarts total.

Then you get
8 qt cottonseed meal
1 pint agricultural lime
1 pintt gypsum
1 qt dolomite
2 qt bone meal
2 qt kelp

14 qt total mix.
