I once saw a video about harvesting microbes. The basic technique was the same—harvest microbes from beneath healthy trees. The difference though was to instead of taking soil, instead dig a little hole near the tree’s roots and bury a nylon stocking or old pair of pantyhose filled with cooked rice and let it sit.
The basic idea is that the microbes will grow into the rice in the stocking. After a few weeks, you pull out the stocking and you have a bunch of rice infused with microbes which can then easily be spread into the gardens.
My plan is to dig my little holes and replace with stockings of rice so that I can harvest some more microbes later.
Please let me know your thoughts,
