Made a whole lot of dirt this weekend. I'll be growing a lot of plants in pots on the patio (and other places), so we'll need a whole lot of potting soil.
- ½ a wheelbarrow of "Garden mix" (which is ⅓ topsoil and ⅔ mushroom compost).
- 3-4 shovels full of plain old topsoil. Ours is pretty sandy.
- ½ - ⅔ gallon of Pearlite (crushed pumice).
- 1 - 2 gallons peat moss.
- ½ cup ground bone meal.
I believe I made about 12 wheelbarrow-loads of potting soil today. ALL of it is in containers now.
This was, when it was full, half of the garden mix I was working with. I'm a wealthy man.
Documenting stuff: Planted carrots and lettuce in the blank spot in the onion bed. (I was going to plant more onions, but I forgot and planted them in a container in the greenhouse. Durn.)
I'll bet this helps the soil.
I'm tired & sore.
