I was planning on keeping a container brewing during the entire growing season, however, due to issues here at home I am happy to do it when I can. Maybe  a bucket a week or more.
As I mentioned, it won't hurt to keep it going continually, just don't allow microbes in the tea to overpopulate.

Hi Sanderson
Been a tough few months on her. A six treatment course was prescribed, stopped after five because the Dr. did not want to have her condition deteriorate more. She has been off now for 5 weeks and I'm not happy with the recovery.
Trembling and memory loss is bad. My wife was one of those women who remembered just about everything, now very poor memory for recent activity..
I only hope she comes back thanks for asking.

I am so, so sorry it is not going well. I don't know what else to say. I forgot what the original diagnosis was but I thought it was more easily treatable.

August 5 peppers are taking off since I pruned them back and watering with compost tea.
I counted 18 little peppers on one plant.

Marie, I hope and wish they mature right, however that's not to say the 18 will go all the way..
I know one thing !!! I'l never let a pepper plant grown without pruning again.
I'll keep this post up to date
