Hi,
My lettuce seeds have come up! the carrots aren't even thinking about it... I started my worm tea. I'm mixing instead of airrating, so do I need to add any extra days to mix?

Hi Deb!
YaY for the lettuce coming up :) Be patient with your carrots, they generally take a while, but don't lose hope!
I'm so happy that many of you are really preparing your own batch of worm tea!! Hope I'm not too late re: your worm tea question. Allow water from your hose to sit for 24 hours before adding your handful of worm castings. Add worm castings, stir everyday for 3-4 days. Before using brew, dilute it until it reaches the color of weak tea.

Can't wait to hear the results!

Milli, Thanks for all your expertise! Gardening has been the perfect "excuse" to be out in nature, breathe fresh air and hone and love something. What a great experience :) You asked about how our seedlings are doing, and well, ours are alive, but not growing! Our rue, champion tomato and pepper are all healthy looking but still just seedlings... we'll try some fertilizing this weekend?

Miss you!
