So, new to this forum and new to being serious about composting and making teas.
I've had an indoor three tiered worm bin for about 2 years now. Previously, I would use the casting as I planted transplants into the veggie garden or on repotting house plants. Now I'd like to take it to the next level and stretch what I have further.
I lucked out and got a huge tumbler for very cheap and have been filling it up with Browns and greens all winter. I think I might have a batch ready to go in a few weeks.
I also keep an active 50 gallon fish tank. The murk that I can pull up from the bottom (under the gravel) is astounding! During cleaning, I normally do not delve deeply into it as I know that all the good biology for the tank lives there.
Is it a good idea to combine all of the above when trying to make my compost tea? Use the bottom water from the fish tank to fill the bucket initially and using both the vermiculture and compost from the tumbler as a base for the tea?
This will be my first time trying to make compost tea. I am reading up on it heavily, but haven't come across anything like this? Any advice?
Thanks in advance!
