Some of our plants were beginning to look a little yellow and I knew it was time for fertilizer. Megan gave me a "recipe" for steer manure tea to use for watering plants. It's totally cheap, easy to make and organic. But a word of warning: It STINKS! But it's a good stink!
Step 1: fill 5 gallon bucket with water, but not all the way!
Step 2: Fill old pillowcase with some steer manure
(an older thin pillowcase works best)
Step 3: Tie pillowcase shut
Step 4: place "teabag" in water
Step 5: Let steep in a sunny spot for a couple of days
(I think it looks more like coffee than tea)
Step 6: Use to water plants
Use the steer manure in your tea bag to put on your compost pile. Your compost will love it! Just don't drink it! LOL
