Gravity fed worm castings/compost/weed tea watering system

Posted by Lyn Buffett on June 30, 2014 at 22:30 1 Comment

I have a big garden, that some would say is steep.   The house is at road level and the back garden slopes down from there.  I know the benefits of compost/weed teas, but distributing these with buckets or a watering can around my garden just isn't practical.  A few years ago I came up with a great solution....

Yacon

Thanks to Brother Joe for his help digging up my Yacon crop. I hope to make a syrup out of the crop so I can help a few friends of mine who are very sick. This root crop (nicknamed earth apple), has an apple flavour & the syrup tastes like treacle.It has powerful healing properties.....especially for diabetics. I have a massive amount of "propagating ryzomes" left over & simply must give them away.Yacon is relatively easy to grow, with no known detrimental problems with bugs.See More
