I make compost tea and we are now making worm bins for the vermicompost that we will get out of that. Worm castings are organic and they say that no compost is as good as what the worms can make. They are the most efficient.

Slowly getting the tea truck ready...need a few things such as white paint
for tank,rewinding hose on a spool,pump and more support :o this thing
rocks the truck when I stop and go.. :lol:

Anyway game plan is to offer worm tea to public OR compost tea but
vermitea would be better. Also possible name for biz is "SOIL JOY".

Cool! Looks a little top heavy though. Carefull going around corners!

It was to heavy so I changed and went with 55 gallon drums.
This big tank is now on the ground hooked to down spout of ease trough to catch rain water
which is really even better way to use it.

I filled this red tank half way today on the truck and did a test drive and as I
stopped the tank water kept rolling.. was in a giant rocking chair :lol:

This is an awesome idea, Can you really produce enough to fill that tank at regular intervals?

Yes I can...but I need more worms for the "worm tea" which is what my goal is.
I need a lot more worms though and I am not there yet. However if I brew up some
regular compost tea from the sheep compost then I can easily make 500 gallons or more
at the drop of a hat.

Worm tea would be better though because I would not have to brew it like regular compost tea. With worms you can just mix dump some worm juice in water and go., but with compost we make
it is slower process and I have to use molasses and air bubbler for 3 days.

brews 3 days then it has to be sprayed with 1-2 hour window or microbes start kicking the
bucket and it goes anaerobic. Reason is because air supply to water has been cut off since
you have to disconnect air pump from tank in order to take off down the road. Although I could
use a DC air pump, but still I like to get the solution in the soil as fast as possible.
