Sundays in the Garden with – Annie Haven
Picture a beautiful sunny day on a California ranch, with horses pulling plows through the fields and cows grazing in the grassy meadows, and that’s the setting where you’ll find Annie Haven.
For generations her family grew plants for seed, and were one of the major suppliers in the U.S.
They used the manure from their ranch animals to nourish and replenish the soil. They ‘brewed’ the manure in large vats, in big sacks the size of pillowcases.
Now this wonderful, all natural, eco-friendly and amazing product is available to the small grower.
We first heard about ‘Moo Poo Tea’ on social media, and everyone was raving about the results they got from it.
So we ordered some to see for ourselves.
The plants did great, so this past summer we decided to do a side-by-side comparison.
Early in the season we brewed some tea and poured it onto one side of the parsnip bed. Mid-season, we did it again.
To be honest, we were shocked by the difference:
Let me just say that Annie knew nothing about this trial, we ordered under our real names and didn’t say anything until we saw the results for ourselves.
We liked it so much that we put her ad on this site.
One of only two, yeah- we are that picky about ads.
But don’t just take our word for it, check out the pinterest link and also hear her interview with Mike the Gardener by using the links below.
Oh and by the way, it does wonders for houseplants too.
Perhaps ours will actually survive this year.
