Theres an even simpler way.
Hold both ends of your hose in one hand, pour water in one end till its full. Then put your thumbs over the ends.
Drop one end into your water source, and secure the hose at the bottom of the tank. Then drop the other end into the destination and secure the hose.

My sheep eat any fruit or veg I eat.
I have not tried them on sugar cane.

The sock with the beetles would not have been a dead loss. Beetles eat a huge variety of foods, because they have intestinal fauna just like a cow. But the fauna would be different to a cow. I hear each time a beetles intestinal contents is studied, new varieties of yeast are discovered.
Bringing the sock of beetles back and giving them some more rice to inoculate with beetle intestinal fauna in  hole, would have benefits. I just couldn't specify what they'd be.

Fenugreek is annual. Its leguminous, and might self seed. It doesn't very well for me but I have hard compacted clay that's usually dry.

I'm an advocate of letting your soil biology take care of your PH.
Aerobic bacteria will push your PH towards 11, fungi will push it towards 5.5, anaerobic bacteria will push it towards 3.
So try to inoculate mycorhizal fungi on your seeds, then it'll take care of itself.

Doesn't tea want an acid soil?
The wood in hugelculture would feed fungus which would push the pH towards 5.5

Replenishing a hay field.
Spread compost.
Try leguminous plants for hay.
Graze with livestock during the year.
Grow mixed species pasture and graze for 2-5 years.
Only a few ideas but with different legumes, pasture species, and livestock species its a lot to try.

I am on an Alcatel one touch. The links are not links for me. So I have to cut and paste and it's very hard on a phone.
I'd love one touch links.
The dead flowers have seeds. So get the seeds from them. The residue plus the leaves and stems could be soaked in hot water for a spray. If you need it in the spring, store them dried in a plastic bag till spring. And spread those seeds wherever you want marigolds. IMHO. LOL
