compost tea, fish emulsion in veg garden-- why?
i've been reading here about using these things, most recently in a post asking organic gardeners if they do something special with heavy feeders. i don't do anything different with them, and have never tried compost tea or fish emulsion, or done any foliar or local feeding. i'm wondering if there's an advantage to using these, over just putting compost and mulch on the soil. it takes more work, so there must be a reason people do it. how do they affect crops?
