It’s time to fertilize your garden for the best possible harvest. Compost tea to the rescue!
Compost tea provides excellent nutrients and microorganisms to your garden. Compost tea benefits include:
* Increases nutrients to your plants and helps to reduce diseases!
* Provides essential organisms that enhance plant growth!
* Enhances the soil for future plantings!
Let’s get started! You’ll need completed compost, water and a bucket.
If you find yourself without complete compost, no fear! Just dig into the bottom of your compost pile and use that dirt. It’s the most fertile soil in your yard!
Simply find a large bucket or a wheel barrel, like I used. I used my wagon wheel barrel for ease of draining the water.
Simply fill your container with water to cover the compost. Let it sit in the sun for a few days.
Drain the water off of the compost, using either burlap cloth or something to hold back the compost. You will need another container to put and/or drain your “tea” into.
Dilute the compost tea 10:1 with water. Put the liquid in your watering pail and nourish your plants (at the ground, not on the leaves)! Use immediately.
