I’m watching, with the rest of the world, as the 33 men are rescued from the mine. As I write this, 10 have been rescued safely and the 11th is on his way to the surface. The rescue is slow paced, carefully planned, and astonishing.
Much of the world news is bad, so many people suffer in so many ways. It is such a joy to see ’round the clock coverage of good news: happy families, loving embraces, tearful commentators.
In the next days they will return to their lives, and we to ours. But for today, let’s rejoice in the strength of the human spirit.

I am surprised to learn that probably 1/2 gallon or more of the compost tea has evaporated…I don't think Pippin drank that much. It might be wise to use a lid next time I make compost tea.
My plan was to foliar feed my garden with the compost tea, but the winds are howling today as our first cold front of the year moves in. So I'm heading out to the garden to harvest all the tomatoes, peppers and those strawberries that decided to fruit in November, then I'll pour my compost tea on the young seedlings.
I will also probably start a second batch of tea, it won't be cold and windy on Wednesday and that would be a great time to foliar feed after we come out of the little cold snap.
BTW – if I had been able to use the pump sprayer to apply the compost tea, I would have poured it through one of the paint strainer bags to catch any large particles that escaped when I initially immersed the tea bag int he water. I did not have the bag tied closed and some debris definitely escaped.
Happy compost Tea brewing everyone. I hope you'll try it, its easy and your plants will love you for it.
