This afternoon was perfect for a spring spray – a biodynamic ‘brew’ of horn manure (BD500) and Cow Pat Pit (CPP). CPP (or barrel compost) contains the five compost preparations, basalt dust, egg shells and cow manure which have been mixed and left to transform in the ground for several months. CPP is a good way to spread the compost preparations over your land without making a large compost heap (though ours is almost ready). Conditions were ideal for spraying; the moon descending, in a root sign, late afternoon, overcast but not too cold and followed by showers. More information on the bd preps can be found elsewhere on this site, and in the links/blogroll (look for the biodynamic sites). Our preps were sourced from Australia Biodynamics – Victoria.
