How to Make and Use Manure Tea
Here at Rabbit Ridge Farm our space is limited. With only 1.25 acres total every square inch gets used. This often means that we plant much more into an area than is normally done so we have to work hard to ensure all of our plant are getting proper nutrients. Recently we’ve had a few crops looking a little yellow, meaning they’re nitrogen deficient.
One of the easiest methods we’ve found to quickly help this is to water with manure tea. To make our manure tea we use the following:
- A five gallon bucket
- rabbit manure (you could use other manure this is what we have)
To use it just water any plants that could use some fertilizer. I think we usually do about 2 cups per plant but you could use more or less depending on your situation.
