Get your COMPOST TEA.  

What is it made from?  Well, there are lots of ways to extract microbes from various organic materials such as manures and composts.  What we're talking about here is a process that strips fungi, bacteria, protozoans, nematodes and other small living things from high quality, finished composts.  Finished thermal composts are those that have gone through high temperature, aerobic processing (turned at east weekly) that suppresses or kills pathogenic organisms, seeds, etc... Mature worm composts are also excellent sources and we use both.  

We are brewing compost tea now.  It will be ready on Monday.  $10 gallon, $3 pint.   #GrowYourOwn   #LoveGrows   #Organic
