Transcript

  • 1. Fermented foliar extracts contain nutrientsand growth factors beneficial to growingplants.
  • 2. We harvest, before dawn, the fast-growingleaves of plants such as comfrey, stingingnettle, mugwort, or vegetables, and weigh,but DO NOT WASH, the leaves.
  • 3. The vegetation is finely chopped...
  • 4. ...and layered with an equal (or up to 2/3greater) weight of brown sugar in a cleancrock or bucket.
  • 5. The material is then weighted down with aweight or “press” (a plastic garbage bagpartially filled with water), to ensure evencoverage, and exclusion of light and air.
  • 6. We remove the press after 24 hours andcover the container with a breathable,natural fabric, and place it in the dark at65-70 ºF for a week.
  • 7. After about one week, thebrown, syrupy liquid thataccumulates is drained off.
  • 8. It can be storedindefinitely in a glasscontainer in therefrigerator.
  • 9. Fermented foliar extracts can be usedas a foliar spray, diluted at about 1:500(about one ounce to four gallons) withwater and other spray nutrients.
