If you are curious, here is what compost tea looks like, before I diluted it with water. It requires no work from me, my worms do all the dirty work. (Pun intended.) So, I mixed this with water, and we will see what effect it has on my plants! I am definitely trying to keep this garden organic, so I will try to avoid commercial fertilizer.
In other plant related news, my broccoli experiment is still inconclusive. The plant that was left out of the sun box is still alive, but seems to be a little more stressed than the other broccoli plants.
If you will notice above, the leaves are pretty small, and one of them still looks a little purple.
Above is a plant that was covered. There is not a huge difference, but this plant seems to be a bit bigger and has more leaves. I will keep watering the plants with the diluted compost tea for a while, and hope to give them a boost.
For those of you that are curious, I will have an entire post on my worm farm/composting someday soon. You will be shocked and amazed, and I hope some of you might even consider having one too!
