what's a good fertlizier brew to make???

Postby ace2 » Thu Sep 04, 2014 11:26 pm

Short story. My veggie patches and fruit trees are connected to a irrigation system with 4 fertlizier injectors .
Last year I used a brew with a large bin filled with water and a Kg of chicken manure, plus other things added as needed to the individual zones.
I have 4 zones with individual injectors with 5lt containers for the mix.
On hand I have a worm farm(6lts liquid juice per week) and about a kg of used coffee grinds every week.

So what other mixes can someone recommend???
Would the coffee grinds make a good brew? I usually spread them around young seedlings plus egg shells to keep the snails away.

Continue doing what you're doing with the coffee grounds, or add them to the compost.

The majority of any nutrients that were in them would have already been leached out, and they'd simply block up your injectors.

Not worth making a brew/tea with the grinds then.

Any other suggestions with making a brew instead of chicken manure??
