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.


Does anyone know where I can find a truck load of Mulch for my garden?
