I've got several compost piles going, but til they're ready I've soaked various green materials for days on end, stirring several times per day. The little scrap of yard I do have I don't fertilize or add herbicide. I've been soaking grass clippings for in/around 3 days and applying the finished 'juice' in some of my prepped beds.

Does anyone here use a similar practice? Is soaking grass and stirring the pot effective in your experience as a low fertility improver? I'm guessing it's not really noticeable, yet in the back of your mind you imagine that it doesn't hurt. There's a lot of life in there.

Post experiences and even other ideas for ways to re-use green waste. Peace -

use netle tea. netle is full of minerals. also comphrey and equisetus is good. you can buy animal manure also (but dont use it if its less than year old)
