If you’re a gardener who’s been conscientiously composting your kitchen waste and using the rich, crumbly material as a soil conditioner in your garden, it’s time to take your composting to the next level.
By mixing that earthy concoction with water and allowing it to steep, you can create a beneficial tea loaded with the nutrients that plants love.

The process of brewing compost into tea not only makes the organic matter more effective, but it improves its usefulness, too.
Compost tea can be used as both a foliar spray and a soil drench.
