As far as NPK, you basically only added 2 cups neem, 1 cup kelp, 1 cup fish meal to 13 c.f. mix!
So uhhh where ya been? I could use some inspirational updates.
Maybe heres a good place to ask, what are some other good organic growers here on icmag that have some good active diaries going?
Im going to be starting one right away here as my soil is complete after a year of prep! Its time for her to shine haha
Thanks. Remember that all of my "recycled" soil has already been ammended once, twice or many times and I do not feel that it is usually fully depleted, so in terms of nutrients I am only topping off. I do, however, try not to overdo any particular inputs, aiming to maintain a balance with plenty of available nutrients and no excesses. It is always easier to fix a deficiency than correct an excess.
Also, my ammendments might be a little more potent than you are thinking. Don't forget the 12 cups of Dr. Earth fertilizer in that last reammendement.
Dr.Earth "Home Grown" Tomato, Vegetable & Herb Fertilizer 4-6-3 from their label
"Wild-caught Alaskan Fish Bone Meal, High Country Feather Meal, Cold Water Kelp Meal, Valley Grown Alfalfa Meal, Mined and Micronutrient-dense Colloidal Soft Rock Phosphate, Wild-caught Alaskan Fish Meal, Naturally Mined Potassium Sulfate, MicroActive™ Micronutrient-rich Seaweed Extract (synergistically boosted with micronized humic acids for maximum bioavailability.)"
Even more importantly, don't forget my homemade EWC from worms fed a rich and varied diet including fish meal, neem meal, kelp meal and a variety of nutritious food scraps and mineral sources.
I seriously messed up my back this Spring and haven't been around much. My last project was making Granola Funk f2s, but nothing got photographed. I take less photos these days because I do not enjoy shooting under LEDs as much as I did under HIDs. With LEDs color representation is just a little whacky no matter what I have tried. Fewer photos has led (ha ha) to fewer posts. I will have to get over it.
