Keeping it natural for my plants and me is important. In this post, I share a few of my favorite natural brews.
Natural Brew for Me and My Plants
Another snow day in Northwest Ohio. The blustery wind blowing so bad that I didn’t dare wonder to far from the warm house. Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to snatch up a mulling spice ball that are hard to come by in my area. On a cold winters day it is warming to sip on tea. I’ve been enjoying a floral blend of tea tremendously this winter. Nothing beats reviewing Holiday Green Tour images while sipping on warm tea.
As I sat and sipped on my tea and enjoyed the wonderful selection of lettuce seeds featured in the Veseys Seed Catalog I couldn’t help but wonder how my bunny brew was doing on the new seedlings I had planted for #SuperSowSunday. Rummaging through the mail for the day I noticed another yellow envelope addressed to me!
It was an efficiently packages natural brewing tea bag from my new friend on Twitter, Annie Haven. She is the owner of in San Juan Capistrano, California. At first glance, I couldn’t help but think ‘ wow… this is going to be some container of sun tea!’ When I quickly noticed the label had a cow on it. You can’t tell that it has natural cow manure in it because it doesn’t smell. However, this tea bag goes into a 1-5 gallon container filled with water and should be left to steep for at least a day.
I can’t wait to give this ‘specialty’ tea brew a try as soon as I run out of the 5-gallon container of Bunny Brew I have in my greenhouse from the #SuperSowSunday party. A few of the Garden Twitters’ and I are planning on doing a #SuperSowSpring on March 21. I might just save this goodie for that day so I will be able to document the development of the new seedlings easier. I will keep you posted on how this product works on my plants growing in the greenhouse.
Updates for Throwback Thursday
I’m celebrating learning about Manure Tea and being introduced to thinking more about what is in my garden. Annie Havens Manure Tea is something I totally recommend to anyone wanting to grow naturally. This is the product that got me thinking and educating myself on what organic is and how to grow more naturally.
Thank you @Green Soil for the wonderful gift for my plants that you know I love so much. Growing natural is a great way to keep healthy and keep warm any time of the year. I’d love to hear from you so please comment below and let me know what you think about a natural brew.
