    Go to a book store and buy Teaming with Microbes by Lowenfels. In it, he describes how to make your own compost tea. You only need 5 gallons/acre of it because you're basically using it to encourage the microrhizae to develop in the dirt. They'll do your fertilizing for you.

    Lots of folks up Alaska way use compost tea. That's where Lowenfels is from. Works on everything. You just tailor it by green or sugar content if you want it on lawn and veggies.
