Homemade Garden Tea

Yeah I’m that girl, that girl that’s trying as hard as she can to do it all! I’m not huge on fertilizing my garden but this year it needed something. A boost. So I did some research and came up with this mix. Take a half gallon Mason jar, put a cup of used coffee grounds and a cup of crushed egg shells in the jar. Then fill with water and let it steep for about a week in a dark spot (I put mine in my cabinet) When it’s done it should look something like this. I ran it through a screen to get out all the shells and grounds then added about 1/4 of the mix in my watering can, fill the rest of the way with water. Feels extremely satisfying to make my own fertilizer with stuff I could have thrown in the trash. I must warn you though, if you do actually try this. When you open the jar and can be under a little bit of pressure so be careful that it doesn’t spray you. Also it really does smell like poop water! Please feel free to ask any questions. Please share your experience with homemade fertilizers. Thanks everyone!
