Meet my drum of workers. Soil bacteria. I discovered David Trood and his "the weedy garden" youtube channel last year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsTsnOoXNdk
This is his first video and his recipe for making soil bacteria (recipe starts at 8.19). So easy, and it makes so much! I add just a cup to each watering can of water when I am planting new plants. I have no idea if its working - but it does smell delicious.... even a whole year later.
I have filled my buckets of biochar with water and added a few cups of this brew. I have asked Tim to please pee in the buckets when he feels so inclined - as urine is apparently a great activator as well. I have covered the buckets and will wait a couple of weeks.
I am keen to brew some more buckets of soil workers this season and wonder what other gardeners do for "tea" recipes??
