|The primary player in casting tea|
Just trying to get everything squared away before it get so, so hot!!
I have this aversion to buying things for the garden, I like to make do with what I have on hand.
I use a lot of food grade Diatomacous Earth for pest control, seeing how I have it around for the animals any way.
And for feeding my garden plants and soil I use cow manure and earthworm castings. mmmm..... garden soo happy...!
|castings, molasses and an aquarium aerator|
|put the castings in the sock to make the "tea bag"|
So here we go.... take some castings and fill a small sock to make the tea bag for your tea. Knot it closed and put it in the bucket of water that you left overnight ( this supposedly allows the chlorine to leave the water) you want the water to be as chlorine free as possible. You see, chlorine acts as a bacterial killer in our water, but what we are trying to do is create a tea of beneficial bacteria for the soil and plant.
|add molasses to feed the micro organisms|
Next thing add some molasses, you are supposed to measure this but I actually hate to measure things, so I just pour some in, probably a few tablespoons. Those micro organisms need to eat to stay healthy so feed them with the molasses.
|watering with the tea|
Oh yeah, and by the way I am going to be selling worms, castings and manure any day now, so if you are interested.......
