    Yeah, man, np.

    I would start the labs first, its just so easy, and usable in others.. then while that is fermenting, you can look into another of your choosing.

    hello,
    I was wondering when it is safe to add my worms, during the cooking process or after? and should i establish my cover crop before transplanting my little ladies?

    How much malted barley would you top dress onto a 36" plant going into week 4 of flower before a tea? Should I brew the barley or just top dress and water in with ewc tea?

    Just a thin layer. Top dressing malted barley is more efficient than an sst. During flower a corn sst would be better than barley. I don't do ewc teas unless the soil dries out.. Personally I'd top dress castings on top of malted barley. But if you are trying to stretch castings then go with the tea.

    Make sure you puree the malted barley.

    Will do, thanks for the advice. I top dressed and watered with some labs afterwards, the plants are very happy right now. Frostiest I've ever seen them going into week 5.

    Corn SST have a high concentration of enzymes that help break down top-dressing's very fast , I top dress kelp, frass ,neem then SST ever few days ,the topdress disappeared very quickly

    Is it OK to put organic tofu in my worm bin?
    It expired Nov 23 and I need to get rid of it.
    I've also got some expired cottage cheese but it's probably got too much sodium.

    @hyroot do you follow a schedule when you apply your teas/lab/fermented stuff?

    Yeah i guess. One watering I'll feed flower power. Next watering I'll feed labs. Next watering I will feed plain water. Every other time on that third watering I swap plain water for an sst.

    I do topdress bokashi and castings every 2 weeks.

    Compost tea's, I only use them if the soil has dried out.. I use mainly corn seed for sst in veg and flower. I can get organic corn seed locally cheap. But barley I'd have to order. I prefer buying locally.

    With the flower power ferment. I don't need anything else. I don't even need to reamend soil with dry amenments. My homemade castings are enough.
