You must be a better grower than me. I've tried a bunch of different soils as well as tried making it myself. Ended up with nothing but yellow leaves and dead plants until fox farm.

After i tried FF my plants grew very well with no problems.

OK i called Fox farm the other day and this is what they said.

They are cranking out their product just like they always have. They claim there is no slow down on their end for any reason. The only idea they came up with was that when everybody got laid off from their jobs for covid they started gardening to keep themselves busy.

I have no idea what the reason is but thats what they told me.
I know someone that works at a grocery store and I asked about the lack of some items and they told me there is a shortage of truck drivers right now perhaps maybe the same issue is happening with soil delivery as most soil comes by palletized freight shippers.

Great minds think alike. I had the exact same notion but i have no way to prove it.

In my neck of the woods garden centers have definitely been going gangbusters since May. I'm sure border and shipping issues play a role as well, but IME garden centers are often out of a lot of garden products this late in the summer. Add increased demand and supply chain issues and...

Yeah the lateness of the season is another reason i thought of for the shortage. Fortunately i have just enough left over for my next grow but I'm the kind of person who keeps a stockpile of a couple bags around as a back up. I don't wait to run out before i go shopping.

Well, the shortage is legit. Two Thursdays ago (23rd) I found my favorite local shop all out of FFOF with no ETA. Thankfully the other local shop had some but man I hate giving them my money. Without fail it’s the same every time: 5 - 8 millennial dudes sitting around behind the counter bullshitting and offering no help, not even a greeting upon entry. Terrible vibes.

For what it’s worth, John R, the woman who manages the good shop is really on top of her game and they brought in Mother Earth Groundswell soil to fill the void - so if it’s available to you it might be worth a look. She says the nutritional load is comparable to FFOF. I got a couple bags. I found it to be a heavier/denser mix. I added some Light Warrior, Fruit & Flower fertilizer, and some extra perlite. Transplanted three plants into it earlier in the week. Time will tell.

Same problems here in Virginia.
I heard that last fall they had a fire ot their plant. They were just starting to recover from the fire when covid came and knocked out the workforce.
Then on top of all that the whole world wants to plant victory gardens and grow their own food, now that they aren't working.
