So yesterday after I cooked beets, carrots and potatoes in water, I saved the cooking water and let it cool down before I added an airstone and pump. I then added a few leaves from my stash and am trying an experiment. My thinking is this....there are microbes on the leaves, there are sugars in the cooking water and now I am brewing up a batch. It seems to be getting a good head of foam on it, just like when I brew compost tea. I thought I might dilute it and use it on my indoor plants. Anyone done this...any thoughts???
