May I pour another cup of Manure Tea?

One bag of manure can be fertilzer for most of the garden.
Manure is too strong to just use as a top soil or even blend into the bed.
I take old detergent buckets from Costco, which are great garden buckets and place some manure on the bottom of the bucket and fill with water.
Sunshine cooks it. I use a plastice water pitcher and feed the roses, first. Always the roses first. They are the prima donna of the garden.
I refill the buckets with more water, get another batch going.
It's like using a teabag twice.
All the plants seem to love it.
I take the spent manure tea and work it into the soil around some of the bushes.
Everybody is happy with their cup of tea.
