We are always looking for ways to amend our garden soil.  Compost tea is probably what we need!  Newly tilled garden, virtually no nitrogen.  Our property was a cattle lot many many years ago.  The garden is respectable this year but we know it can be healthier.  Thanks for being here Eric!!

Can I ask what your compaction is like ?

Thanks for you kind words Michele. It's just an idea, it's something I do myself day to day. If you have regular household waste and brown cardboard, an old bin with a lid and the base cut out or rusted out. Stick it near a tree you like and watch the results. This suggestion is ultra low maintenance, you don't have to do anything with it just leave it, if there are worms where you are, they will come, then the transformation is underway.
