For those who make and use compost tea, how often do you water/spray your veggie plants with the tea?

everything i have read or heard says you can not use to much...it wont hurt your plants Very Happy

we use it when i think the plants need a boost....we look at the growth and color of the plant to decide if they need a little boost or not....we also use it when first planting a new seedling

I don't use it more than once every two weeks. That is only because my soil is already pretty charged up with compost. Like the other poster said it mostly goes by looking at the plants. If you hit some warm weather and they have a big growth spurt and don't look quite as green as before you know they could use a boost.

I've hit small plants with pretty concentrated compost tea before with no ill effects.
