How to make manure tea (For Plants)

Here's a quick and easy recipe to make your own probiotic fertilizer.

Step 1.
 Find a beastie with a gut full of microbes and grass.

Step 2. 
Find some poop from said beastie. 

Step 3. 
Mix the poop with some water. We do about 4 parts water to 1 part poop. There's no firm rule.  Once it is mixed let is sit for 1 to 3 days. The long the better I suppose. 

Step 5. 
That's it. Water you plants and watch your plants shoot skyward ecstatically. The microbes in the manure will colonize your soil and boost it's vitality and productivity; the organic matter will be digested by worms and other critters who will build your soil with their castings.
