Q.Question About Manure Tea

Zone hardiness zone 8 | Anonymous added on July 13, 2021 | Answered

Hi there, I have had good luck making manure tea from your instructions. However, one batch (which I stored in a sealed gallon plastic water bottle) has what looks like green algae on top. Is this batch still good to use? Thanks, Becky in CA
