The picture below shows how the prep material (basically compost) was mixed with the water as it was oxygenated. The apparatus we used is made to simulate the action of a brook or a stream because those are the forces of nature that can oxygenate water like nobody's business, but this thing comes in at a close second. Where Narendra is pointing is the spot at which two vortices created by the shape of the tub collide, mix the air and water together, and then fall through to the next level. We let this baby work it's magic for an hour before we brought it all out to the fields and applied it. Like the great Willy Wonka once said, "The chocolate has to be mixed by waterfall." But, in this case, the chocolate is manure that's been composting underground for a year.
Well, that was Monday, as for today not much to tell except it was beautiful, harvest was a foggy breeze, and Josh busted out his old mix tapes to play on the boombox while we washed veggies in the barn. Let's just say washing lettuce to The DOC and Dr. Dre is way better than listening to whatever is on OPB. That's it for now, enjoy the last few days of second summer. Talk to you next week!
