Martha Brews Up Some Compost Tea
Oh, March, the month that officially ushers in spring, and with it, thoughts of gardening. Martha Stewart, on her blog, shows us how to brew "compost tea."
It's not exactly something you'd want to drink as a human, but your plants will appreciate a taste of the stuff. Using a special contraption to brew it, Martha and her staff steep compost in tap water that's been infused with a special microbial powder that gets the nutrient action going.
Martha recommends feeding plants with it once a month—or every two weeks, if your little green friends seem particularly stressed.
