when I make like this tea I add some compost to bubbling water. It sits in there, gets added to, and used up, forever in the corner. Works with composted dirt/poop etc.  cheap and easy ferts for anyone. Some added fungi/bacteria will start it faster, outside dirt is ready in a week or so in my experience. Worm compost is hot and ready quicker and goes along way. cow/rabbit/chicken poop are awesome for this.

One of the easiest ways I found to get started was simply using the Clackamas coots recipe. It's simple and it works.


1 part peat moss, 1 part compost, 1 part aeration.


1-1.5 cups of each crab meal, kelp meal, and neem cake per cu ft.

4 cups each of basalt, gypsum, and oyster shell flour per cu ft.


Coots keeps the p pretty low. I guess some sources high in p can have a negative impact on the mycos. He recommends a low P recipe.


Hopefully I'll catch you today, imi.

Okay... I asked about the 'compost' as it is such an encompassing term. 


I have all those ingredients Sune, except the crab meal and neem cake.

His recipe was where I am going to start. 


My issues appear to be P and Ca, at least that's what it looks like to my

untrained eye.


I came across a foliar or drench feed of Coconut water as it has Ca, P and Mg.

I hope it will help my ladies, they did perk up after the 1st. application.  I shall see.


I wasn't planning on getting out today but, now I just might :) 

Prob not till around 1pm.
