>Alfalfa Tea Night

>I started a second batch of Alfalfa Tea day before yesterday. Tyler called my office today to tell me that he could not stand the stench of it “steeping” in the trash can any longer. At that moment I knew it was ready for use. I didn’t get home until after 9 tonight, so I drug out my gallon jugs and the tea and started filling and applying to the roses. I ended up with two extra gallons. So, I got in my truck and drove the elixir over to the Audrey and Bob Murdaugh’s house. They have a few roses that I have been helping them with. It was about 9:40 when I got there. I knocked on the door. I know that Sarah Katherine and her dad thought I had lost my mind when I held out the empty stinky gallon jug and explained why I was there. I told them they would see greener foliage and possibly some new shoots within a week or so.

Time will tell!
