Hey, Soaked 8 cups of Thorvin Kelp meal in 5 gal. I added some sugar / stirred occassionally; and after 2 weeks 5 gal off that. and added citric acid 1 tbas /gal to store. Added 5 more ga water to these dregs and will wait another 2 weeks for results. Will mix both to make consistent. My question is to the max dilution to keep the tea stored in a rate that is controllable and usable by iliterate. Stubborns mules who need it so simple. ( They fear to try new stuff and I am pretty much done trying to prove anything.. still I have a moral obligation to not give out a tea that is too strong. That is all I am going to do to "help" is porvide a dose and one MUST do the experiment oneself. Still I think having a standard measurement could possibly be done with color. I don't have the capabilities to make a color chart of what tea should look like what shade color but it seems like a good project for Wee Puppy. The alfalfa tea is obviously murkier the older it gets and 2 weeks is a good amount of time I suppose. Is there an advantage to letting the ferment go for 1 month? More? The comfrey is now lacking in my yards due to the deer liking to eat it. I am about to resort to getting seed and planting massive. We have the room and why not? Its for the weed and that is way more valuable than the acres of land there doing nuttin much as good as comfrey. I don't have time to cultivate the roots. Is seeded variety so invasive that I could be a burden long after I am gone? There are no plan for the land but I am hesitant to plant the seeded variety of comfrey. Which others are a possible substitute for comfrey,please? Thanks, url With kelp-the redder the better; and I have pushed kelp teaon my own plants with trepedation but luckily to a good result. Still I prefer to let others kill their own plants.
