Best Use for Pond Sludge?
My husband just cleaned out our koi pond and gave me about a metal trash can full of sludge -- mostly fish poop that has accumulated over the last year. I am wondering what the best use for this is. I know I could just throw it in the compost, but I'm also about to transplant my warm weather plants (tomatoes, peppers, cantaloupes) and I'm wondering whether this would be good stuff to just add to the bottom of the hole and plant on top of.
The other option would be to use it to create "compost tea." I don't have an active worm bin right now, and while I share a compost pile with my neighbor, it's not ready for action yet. So I was wondering if this fish poop sludge would be a good substitute for actual compost or worm castings in compost tea.
