Post subject:  Seaweed from the Brazos

I read the response regarding Galveston seaweed, but how about seaweed gleaned from the Brazos River (south of Lake Whitney). Would it make a good ingredient to add in an aerated compost tea mixture? :mrgreen:

Yes sea weed makes a great ingredient. I was the one who posted the Galveston sea weed. After two weeks, in my compost bins, I turned the compost and could not find anything that resembled the seaweed. The dirt doctor replied to my post and said it it a great ingredient to add.
I thought it would smell bad, but it had a sweet smell when I added it to the compost. Let us know how your compost tea mixture turns out.

Another great use for fresh water "seaweed", algae, or whatever is growing in the creek beds is as a mulch. We have a live creek on our property, and when it gets really hot and the algae starts building up pretty heavily, I go and rake it out and use it to mulch around tomato plants.
