dannyholikati(7)May 16, 2006

can I use manure tea on my whole garden...I am growing corn,squash,cantaloupe,watermelon,tomato,and sweet peppers...should I still use a high nitrogen side dressing on the corn and another fertilizer on the other plants or will the manure tea be enough

Never use manure tea. Make sure the manure is composted first before creating the tea, especially when you plan on applying it to vegetables you are going to eat. For plants that are specifically known to benefit from high nitrogen, use fish emulsion and seaweed/kelp.
