Seed Packet Banner & Compost Tea

I ran across some 

old empty seed packets

that 

Buzz had stowed away


and thought they would make a 

FuN BaNner 


"Rusty" 

cheese graters

could be strung up too,


maybe with twinkling lights inside.

What do you think?


 Buzz keeps all kinds of 

Goodies

in the 

Garden Shed



tempting me to explore.


Still,

as you can see, 

it's a working shed 

too.


Today, 

while I'm taking pictures,

he's making

"Compost Tea"


Buzz's Compost Tea Recipe
(He makes this every two to four weeks)

Great for Organic Gardening

You'll need:

A Clean Five Gallon Bucket
Aquarium Bubbler
Painters Strainer
High-Quality Dark Compost
Sorgum Molasses
Rain Water (or Tap water that has set in the sun for two days)

To Make it:

Fill the bucket with water 
Fill the strainer bag/pouch with compost
Tighten pouch & suspend it in Water  
Add 3 or 4oz of Sorgum Molasses 

Make sure it's in a shady spot 
Turn on the Bubbler
Allow to run for 18 to 24 hours
  *The white foam on top is a good thing

To Use it:

Dilute with rain water (2/1 or 4/1)

Use a Watering Can to water individual plants
or use as a foliar spray directly on the leaves.



Best Wishes

from our

Garden 

to Yours!

  8. Love your banner so much. I too adore making banners. Smart idea to spray the leaves. I sure do agree with you about $tree. I could go crazy in that place.
