The tomatoes are starting to ripen and need a boost. A little dose of chicken manure pellets will do, but there is an abundance of nettles here, and nettle water is reputed to do wonders. Just pick a big bunch of nettles.

Submerge them in a barrel of water.

Let them sit and ferment (rot) for a couple of weeks, and then use the liquid as a fertilizer (diluted 1 to 10). It’s especially good for tomatoes that need lots of nitrogen, and all other vegetables.
