Even your plants like a spot of tea — manure tea that quenches their thirst and adds yummy nutrients to the soil.
You can make the tea from any kind of vegetable-based manure from cows, horses, and alpacas; but don’t use manure from meat-eaters.
Here’s how make manure tea:
1. Cut a foot-long piece of pantyhose (knot one end), or use an old stocking or knee-high.
2. Fill the stocking with about a cup or two of manure, and knot the end.
3. Fill the watering can with water and let the manure/stocking steep for about 5 minutes or until the water turns brown.
4. Water the base of plants.
