Expert Compost Teas Made Easy

Compost Tea

Compost Tea’s work wonders in a garden by feeding the micro-biology “bugs” (Biological Under Ground System), in the soil for fast, healthy plant growth. We have been brewing and applying Compost Tea’s on 500k+ acres of Farm Land since 1974. 5000 Gallon batches at a time, we have a good idea on how to increase the micro-biology in the soil and brew a great Compost Tea. More micro-biology equals faster root development, which in return will result in faster plant development. After all, a plant cannot grow if the roots cannot sustain the growth. Lets discuss a few easy Compost Tea Recipe’s, we will be covering a Veg/Grow Compost Tea Recipe as well…

Healthy Roots

Healthy Roots

Roots are a main source for providing food to any plant. The roots absorb macro nutrients, micro nutrients, bio stimulants, vitamins, organic acids, and natural growth hormones. Through this absorption process, all the necessary elements feed all other plant development, such as stem, leaf, flower, and/ or fruit. You must take care of your roots because they are the start of your plants life cycle and the gateway to reaping a large harvest. If you maximize your root structure early in your plants life cycle, you will reap large rewards later on in harvest. Micro biology is the key to large root mass and root production. A few ways to…

beneficial bacteria

Most commercial potting mixes have been sterilized using a high heat process to kill any weed seeds included with the mix. On some levels, this is a good thing, since we don’t want random weeds sprouting up amongst our plants. Unfortunately, this process also destroys the beneficial fungi and bacteria that would otherwise be living in that soil. Kelp4Less Myco + Innoculant Blend gives you everything you need to restore the beneficial microbiology to your soil. Have you ever stopped to consider the fact no one ever fertilized a forest? Those trees grew with the help of soil bacteria and fungi breaking down organic material ( a process called mineralization)…

There really isn’t much more summer-y an activity than picking and eating strawberries fresh from the garden. Warm from the heat of the sun, red, they smell wonderful and taste even better. There is something so satisfying about eating your own harvest. The Mad Scientist’s very own strawberry harvest.   Strawberries aren’t super difficult to grow, but there are a few things which are helpful to know in advance. For one thing – don’t expect berries the first year you plant. You may get a couple, but your second harvest will be much more plentiful. Strawberries are really kind of cool – they send out a”runner” which put out roots and…
