I noticed just over a week ago that my potted zucchini's were looking like I needed to adjust their feeding levels. I made a liquid manure by filling buckets 2/3 full of compost and topping with water. After about 3-4 days of sitting, I roughly strained this mixture and applied the mix to my plants. They just received their second feeding tonight but already the color is adjusting....I'll post another pic in few days on their progess. This garden tip is part of a 'mid summer chores' post I recently did.

Stan N Becky King on Jun 19, 2013wish I had old panty hose hanging around... darn...
Rose Zajdler on Oct 22, 2013do you use the water or the manure?
Sow and Dipity on Oct 22, 2013@Rose Zajdler The liquid left behind after strained is the tea... you use that and throw the 'sludge' back into the compost pile :)
Does one have to strain it. Why not just put it as is non the plant. The manure will also be good?
