I think you have the wrong person. Grew a NL x Haze back in the day from a 20 year old seed Coot cracked, but didn't keep the genetics. I'm guessing you meant to quote someone else.

You could possibly partner with Rocky Mountain and produce castings on site. It would be cheaper and give them good promotion.

We are a really small company of only 12 people, running a 7 acre farm. I wish we could command the shipping rates of a company like Amazon.

I am exploring options to have mixing facilities in other states, but it's a long process of registering with the state, sourcing local materials, and then creating a soil mix that will match or exceed what we currently offer. The biggest issue I've had is finding a quality compost or earthworm castings that's affordable and I would want to grow in.

We are doing our best, but I realize for people far away, that's not much of a solution. You might see if Buildasoil is closer or check out our Nutrient Pack, which allows you mix our same recipe using local inputs (peat, compost, aeration).

Or, post some ingredients on here of what you can source locally and tag me and I'm happy to chime in with input on a recipe.

Hope that helps!
Thatís the route Iím taking! Being In Michigan I have a build a soil near me so I will take advantage of that and order some of your mineral mix.. 2 quick questions when you have a moment.
What is a good rule of thumb for amount of organic mineral/substance to re amend come that time?
Also after adding your mineral mix what is a good timeframe to let it cook for before using?

Also Iíd like to add what youíre doing educating the misinformed or uninformed couldnít be appreciated more! Your podcasts are truly amazing and a wealth of information Iíve listened to quite a few of them some more than a few times to let it soak in! Awesome job and thank all of your friends as well. The books Iíve recently ordered Iím sure I will soon find out will be nothing but great as well. Thanks again tad!

Are we talking mineral mix or Nutrient Pack? The mineral mix is mostly some calcium sources and rock dusts, not NPK, therefore won't cause the soil to heat up. However, you probably need less of that than you think, as there may be sufficient levels in your soil. This is where a soil test is useful.

For the Nutrient Pack, I would suggest a soil test as well, but barring that information, we typically recommend adding 1-2 regular per yard of soil and then 1 cubic ft of high quality compost or EWC. After the first cycle you may want to add a bit more aeration amendments and also cut some of the Ca sources, depending how the the cultivars you're growing are uptaking the Ca. I've found it tends to build up over time with many of the most common cultivars, also raising pH. We can make some of those adjustments for you as well with the Nutrient Pack we send you if you share your test results with us.
