“Tea made from your castings FAR exceeded the quality of tea made from the commercial castings..”
Worm Ladies in the News
Hello Worm Ladies,
I have been carefully brewing and analyzing "Actively Aerated Compost Tea's" as part of an initiative to develop a well rounded, diverse, and effective soil/foliar inoculants. In a recent test I replicated two identical brews to examine the effects of using commercial worm castings vs. your worm castings. The commercial castings I purchased came from a local hydroponic shop. When I ran the first brew with these bag-bought castings, I was very disappointed in what I saw under my microscope. Quite frankly, there was not much life. After I finished the same cycle with your castings, I was amazed! Just one drop of the tea contained an incredible abundance and diversity of bacteria. It didn't stop there; I witnessed large populations of different types of protozoa including flagellates, ciliates, and amoebae. Fungal content was impressive, and I even saw 'bacterial feeding' (the good kind) nematodes! Tea made from your castings FAR exceeded the quality of tea made from the commercial castings. I am excited to see such a valuable resource produced and sold locally; keep up the good work!
