My goal is with each round to feature someone different showing how they make their soil. Like opinions, everyone has one, everyone has their own way to do it 🙂
We made enough soil for one Grassroots Fabric Pots living soil 4′ x4′ raised bed, which is about ~ 20 to 22 cubic feet. We used Fox Farm for no other reason than that’s what the supply store had. Interestingly, lots of stores are out of a lot of product right now as it seems like everyone is starting up a home victory garden.
8 bags of Fox Farm Ocean Forest 1.5 cubic feet x 8 = 12 cubic feet
1 bag Berger BM6 3.8 cubic feet — 7.5 cubic feet fluffed up
1 bag Organics Alive Premium Mix 0.7 cubic feet. another 1/3 bag Premium Mix = .3 cubic feet
1 bag Organics Alive Worm Castings 0.7 cubic feet
The target was 10% premium mix, but we only had one bag of it. That’s why we also used the 1 bag of worm castings. We would have used just over 2 bag of Premium Mix had we had enough (and zero bags of pure worm castings).
Then, as we were transplanting:
Less than a gram per plant near the root zone of the VN Granular Slow Release. A sprinkling of worm castings around the seedling root zones. We wanted to add Mycorrhizae but didn’t have any. We will add that this week. We watered with a drop of fermented plant juice – FPF (Fulvic) mixed into Tom’s teensy tiny watering can.
We hit it with a compost tea two days later.
