As most of you already know, my peppers have not been doing to well this year. They have not been growing at the rate they should. I got a lot of great advice from some of my readers, but nothing seemed to work. I then remembered a youtube video that I saw. It was about compost tea and how great the results were. I looked up the video (which I have posted at the bottom of this article). It was too easy not to try.
Simply put compost tea is just what it sounds like. You take some finished compost, about 2 or 3 hand fulls, put it into a five gallon bucket. Fill said bucket with water and stir. Let it stand for a day or two. Stir it a few more times while you are in the waiting process. After a day or two use the compost tea to water your garden.
I have been watering my garden a few weeks now with nothing but the compost tea and whatever rain mother nature decided to provide. The results have been amazing. The peppers went into a growth spurt unlike any I have ever seen. The plants are flowering and producing peppers. In another week or two I should have my first little harvest. Whether you are having problems or not I would recommend this method. A big thanks to Ray for posting this on his site and saving my garden!
