Making Compost Tea

Image

September 5, 2012

I made my first batch of compost tea using the compost rotator (See the dark water line)

How it Works:
After the compost has had time to decompose in the digester, add rain water to the barrel.

The rain water will take on some of the compost nutrients and can be used to fertilize the garden.

I filled an old Disarono bottle with some of the mixture.

In the background you can see my sunflowers and corn are growing great!
