Compost Tea – Make Your Own!

It’s really not that hard.  All you have to do is fill a container about half way with compost and then fill it the rest of the way with water.  Then just let it sit.  And sit…  After a couple of weeks, you can dilute it to spray on your plants as a foliar feed.  You will need to strain the mixture or you will just end up clogging your sprayer and cussing.  A bit of old panty hose works really well wrapped over the mouth of a bottle and held on by a rubber band.  Dilute the mixture down until it sort of looks like tea… about one part concentrate to anywhere from five to ten parts water.
