Alfalfa Tea Problem?

foxglovema(z5-6/ma)May 12, 2004

I'm making my first batch of alfalfa tea and have some questions. I started it last friday per instructions from a Rose forum friend.... 1/2 bag (a little less, actually) in a 30 gallon garbage container, fill with water, stir. Let sit. Stir daily....etc. for a week and then gleefully feed stinking liquid to the roses....

Well, today it is the consistency of thick oatmeal - very hard to stir. There is almosts no liquid in the garbage container. Did I do something wrong?

Thank you for your help!

Twas answered on the other forum, so let it start down. (3x or 5x too much alfalfa.)
