Compost tea, that is.
I got my worm compost bin for my birthday in December, and have been slowly building my worm community in the months since. It hasn't all been smooth sailing. At one point, I had baby worms but almost no adults. (It turns out I was over-feeding them scraps and not enough paper; too much nitrogen and not enough carbon.) I think I've finally figured out the balance, and since we moved the composter outside, they have thrived.
Yesterday, I collected my first batch of compost tea from the bottom of the composter. What a thrill! I diluted it with water, and it went to feed my tomato plants.
I think they liked it!
Nothing like a cup of tea to perk you up.
