5.0 étoiles sur 5 Compost Tea Making 6 mars 2011
Par Shannon L. Yarbrough - Publié sur
I grew up with "green thumb" parents who tended to a number of gardens to grow vegetables for our own dinner table, including several of our neighbors throughout the community. I remember my father getting up at three in the morning every day during Winter to go out and stoke the fire of a pot bellied stove in his green house and to say good morning to thousands of flats of seedlings.

I hated vegetables and anything related to gardening back then, but these days as Spring approaches, I'm always eager to bid farewell to the grocery store and seek out my local Farmers Markets for fresh fruits and vegetables instead. For the past four years, I've poorly attempted to grow herbs and the occasional tomato or pepper plant in my back yard urban garden, and have since resorted to hostas and bulbs to satisfy by "green" family roots that are slowly turning me into my parents.

My father grew lucrative tomatos by the truck load using only manure, a water hose, and lots of love and attention. These days, I keep my lawn green using a Miracle Grow spray, but being interested in alternative and "greener" methods of caring for my habitat, I found Marc Remillard's book, Compost Tea Making, to be quite appealing.

Marc's book begins with an extensive and scientific approach to compost, what it's made of, how the organisms in it help each other and help the environment, and so on. It is quite obvious that he knows what he is talking about! However, Marc approaches the subject with an often humorous approach and appeals to the reader in almost a fun-loving grade school Biology teacher kind of way. He is being serious and holds your attention, but you are not bored. And most importantly, you are learning something.

The second half of the book covers procedures for making compost. There's also a plethora of information about the different types of worms and how each is beneficial to your compost heap. Marc also covers how to make your own worm bed and the do's and don'ts of how to manage the bed and worms.

Lastly, we learn how to make compost tea and how different environments benefit from it. Your flowers will bloom longer. Your vegetables and fruits will be more plentiful. Your lawn will be greener and healthier. Even vineyards can benefit from it. There's even a troubleshooting section to tell you what to expect and to help you through steps you might be doing wrong.

After absorbing such a wealth of information, I expected the actual brewing process to be just as elaborate, if not more complex. But the tools you need to set up your brewer can probably be purchased for under $50 total and can all be found at Home Depot.

At 120 pages, I was very impressed by Mr. Remillard's book because I didn't feel overwhelmed by useless information. I'm definitely not an expert gardener, and the author doesn't treat his readers as such. He takes you through every step of the process from beginning to end, but he doesn't just tell you how to do it. He thoroughly explains each and every aspect of the process as a whole so that you really do get a complete understanding from start to finish.

The book is laced with black and white microscope photos of various compost organisms giving the book a very professional and almost encyclopedic feel. There's also a personal interview with an organic farmer. I loved the "blurbs" from various plants and flowers on the book's exterior too!

So, if you are looking for alternative and "greener" methods for caring for your plants, flowers, lawn, trees, and more, or want to learn how to start composting, I highly recommend Marc Remillard's Compost Tea Making.

I almost didn't buy this book because of the two poor reviews. Then I thought perhaps the reviewers could simply be the typical curmudgeons who are rarely pleased with anything. I found this book to be an enjoyable read, with practical, useful ideas. I do agree with the one curmudgeon, that Teeming With Microbes is an excellent book, but more general. Compost Tea Making focuses on simply that, going into further detail. The worm growing chapter is quite good. The chapter on EM (effective microorganisms) is short, and could be in more detail.

The ideas are presented in a style that encourages readers to experiment or modify recipes or techniques to suit their own needs. For those that somehow need definitive answers this book may not be for you. I am not one of those. The author illustrates how complex, and only partially understood microbiology is. The bottom line is--I am convinced. Compost tea and EM products are the wave of the future for horticulture. Without going into detail--my plants have benefited from just a few compost tea applications.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best Book on Compost Tea 20 février 2011
Par Joanne - Publié sur
This is a must-have for anyone who loves plants of any kind. The concept is really an eye opener. The author describes how important it is to have abundant microbial life in soils for the health of plants and ourselves. It goes into enough detail to get the reader to understand the facts, but not so much as to become tedious. It is actually a very good read. I like the authors style. It 's elegant, quirky, funny, and down-to-earth all rolled up together.
The chapter on worm growing is some of the best, most current information I have read. I was not aware that the book covered vermiculture until I got into it. Perhaps that could be advertised a bit better.
The chapter on actually making compost tea is well layed out, direct, and simple. I can do this. The section on the EM1 [effective microorganisms] product is really interesting and cutting edge. They have found that if you mix compost tea & EM1 together you have an extremely powerful elixir.
Also I checked out the Compost Tea Making website. There more to learn there as well. Good job Marc Remillard!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good practical information 22 juin 2011
Par Anna - Publié sur
In the first chapter the author does an excellent job of describing what compost tea is and why it works so well. Applied microbial science in a very readable format, and quite convincing. What follows are chapters on growing worms, composting, and making compost tea out of that compost or worm castings. The essential information is all there--without the fluff (no charts, graphs, or mathematics).
I disagree with the two reviewers who gave this book poor reviews. Yes there are plenty of references to compost tea online, but much of it is poor, conflicting info, with little scientific backing. Mr. Remillard addresses these issues by explaining clearly why compost teas must be aerated, and what the best materials are to work with. The reason I bought this book is because I wanted to know more, and I was confused. So far this is the best, most comprehensive book on how to make compost tea.

I purchased this book, based on several glowing reviews. After reading it, I now question if those reviews were from the author's friends. I did glean a few useful tips, but there are others that I question. I found the writing style to be unpolished, and the organization to be somewhat lacking. Here's an example, where Marc recommends covering the brewing bucket so dogs don't drink the tea: "The tea is more valuable than their food. That's what dog food is for." Really? This is a very informally written book. There is no comparison in quality with the book, Teaming with Microbes: the Organic Gardeners' Guide to the Soil Food Web (Revised edition) by Jeff Lowenfels and Wayne Lewis, which I also own. Teaming with Microbes is absolutely professionally presented, and has an amazing amount of organized and well-written scientific information, and includes specific instructions on how to build your own brewer and different tea recipes. If you want to understand more about how compost tea improves your plants, and how to brew compost tea, that is the book to get; it's an amazing bargain at Amazon's price, and would even be well worth the full retail price of $24.95. And, no, I am not associated with the authors in any way. Pass on buying Compost Tea Making, unless you can get it used & really cheap, or read a copy from your library for free.
