Watering Schedule / Compost Tea
I just set up 4 in-ground/raised beds in my backyard along the west wall so they will get afternoon shade. They are all 4 X 8 ft mixed with compost, vermiculite and peat moss.
Everything is on drip irrigation with 1 gph emitters.
First Question: What is your watering schedule now and then what is it when it starts getting really hot? Some people say just water in the early morning, and others say water multiple times per day.
Second Question: Do any of you guys use compost tea? I have a small worm bin and mix castings, rock dust, fish emulsion and molasses in a bucket with an air pump. This is my first season really trying to utilize compost tea but I'm unsure of the frequency I should apply it. Every week was what my plan was going to be, but any suggestions?
This season i'm trying:
