Herbal teas for soil and crops
Rudolf Steiner House
Herbal teas for soil and cropsUsing a array of plant, compost, and Biodynamic preparations as liquid teas to increase vitamins, minerals, and micro-organizims. These can be applied as a foliar or soil spray. Herbal teas act on plants in a similar way to their effects on us. In this photo brewed Chamomile tea is strained and diluted before being applied as a foliar spray after a grape harvest.
Hot CompostA windrow compost heap is cooking hard in the first 48 hours after being constructed. This pile has made from cow manure, straw, and winery excesses. I create a very hot compost to help kill of the grape seeds with their hard shells.
Rudolf Steiner HouseLocated in the suburb of Ellerslie. The Rudolf Steiner house plays host to my teaching class every Monday morning from 9am till 11am. All are welcome to join.
GPS MappingUsing GPS mapping to view year to year monitoring or marking weak or diseased plants. Helps to give you a easily understandable assessment of your site. Linked with other observations such as soil samples to give you a better view of your property and any patterns.
Compost Thermometer A useful tool in any compost makers tool bag is a compost thermometer. Using it to test temperature throughout your pile allows you to see if you are getting consistent activity. Creating a worksheet to track the progress of your pile allows you to note and build upon your compost making skills.
