Summer has run away with us, I’m a few weeks behind in posting pictures. But we’ve been having sooo much fun! I hope you have too.
We’ve had a wonderful few days walking down to water the garden & catch fireflies. My injured foot is healed enough to get back to work in the garden, with proper shoes of course. I have the last bit of planting to do. Quick turn last years lasagna gardens, for late squash & watermelons.
I’d read about fermented nettle tea as a fertilizer, and had some in the tea herbs and thought I’d make my own. I haven’t fermented anything on purpose till this. I added about 1 tablespoon of dried nettles, and a good pinch of dried raspberry leaves for calcium, poured about 2 cups of hot water over it and caped the jar. I shook it every day to mix it up, and opened the lid to check if it had fermented yet. I knew if started when the lid popped when opening it the 3rd day. I let it sit a another 2 days to really get it working, letting the pressure out each day. I then diluted it to make 2 watering cans full, and watered all the garden babies.
