Gerry, I am sure you are well intentioned but sometimes you rub the wrong way. So you are telling me that from day one you knew how to "activate" tea fungally??? if not then it was kind of a mystery wasn't it. How many other ways are there out there to "activate" teas??? I don't know either. about the 2 year old compost statement, The composters I am referring to have more experience than all of us put together. Both companies have a full time employee that does nothing but go around and sample piles.
