Grass & Compost Tea
Grass and Compost tea are great options to supply your lawn and garden with plenty of nitrogen. For grass tea, fill a 5g bucket 2/3 of the way with fresh lawn clippings, and fill it with water. Let it steep for 72 hours, strain, and dilute 1:1 with water.
For compost tea, fill a 5g bucket 1/3 of the way with your finished compost and then fill with water. Let it steep for 3 to 4 days, stirring frequently. Strain out the solid compost and dilute 1:10 with fresh water. Both teas can be applied directly to the soil or with foliar spray.
Using plain white vinegar is great for acid-loving plants. Just mix 1tbsp with a gallon of water and apply once every three months. Make sure to test your soil before altering the pH too much!
Sprinle a layer of Epsom salts around the base of your plants to support their enzymatic processes and help vegetables germinate.
Mix coffee grounds with dead leaves and grass clippings to get a nutrient-rich fertilizer. You can also use eggshells, or used freshwater from fish tanks. It may sound strange, but it really works!
