    [​IMG] Sorry I don't have any bright ideas on the "tea". I compost what I collect and I still haven't even used it. It just piles up. [​IMG]

    I really don't know the answer to your question. I compost mine in a big pile with grass clipping and such.

    WELCOME ABOARD. Making your own fertilizer will probably pose no problem. Just don't go over board.

    I believe, the nitrogen content of fresh poo, is too hot for applying directly to the garden. My uncle once put raw horse manure on his roses and lost every last one. Burned them right to the roots. I think you'll need to compost/age the poo before actually using it on your plants.
