The tea fields have been picked ending the spring flush. It’s time to prune the tops of the plants to encourage new growth. The upper field has been pruned, the lower field will be completed today. This will be followed by foliar feeding of compost tea. Compost tea is a brew made from our own compost which encourages microorganism growth to enhance the soil and opens the growth path for the tea plants. We’ll also mow the grass that has gotten a bit too tall. The grass cutting will be used in our compost to raise the temperature of the compost and add nitrogen. All in a day.
