I am a new gardener and have seen the term “manure tea.” Can you tell me what it is, where to get it, and how to use it?
You make it yourself. Here’s the recipe. Fill a large trash can two-thirds full of water. Add 2 large buckets of chicken manure and let steep for several hours. Stir with a hoe until it is murky. Ladle the “tea” around vegetables or flowers. Old-timers claim that this drink will prevent tomato blight, and it’s a great multi-purpose fertilizer.
