Cup of Tea for Young Lot Sophia

Young Lot Sophia lavender the first week of May.

After fermenting the compost tea for at least 24 hours, we serve the young Lot Sophia plants about a cup each. The plants are pushing some growth, which means they are rooting in, and this tea will provide a good source of nutrition to facilitate this process.

After “serving” the tea, we put the spent compost from the tea-making into the pile we will compost again, then add fresh biodynamic compost  to the mesh bag, and begin again to ferment a fresh batch of tea. We will make this tea almost constantly over the next weeks and months to use on young aromatic and garden plants, an inexpensive, rich source of fertility.
