Brewing Compost Tea

I did some compost brewing last year but not much. Now that the construction of my square foot garden is almost complete, I will definitely get serious about brewing tea this year, and will do some experiments, giving the tea to half of a box and leaving the other half alone. I will be using my own compost, plus worm castings, and adding a tad of molasses. As to the water. I just fill a 5 gallon bucket with tap water and let it sit for 24 hours. That will get rid of the chlorine. Remember the #1 rule in gardening. There is no #1 rule in gardening. Just get out there and get growing!
