re-charging last years soil?

Hello folks, its been a while. I forgot my password. It feels good to be connected once again.

Well, its a new season. I have a solexx greenhouse. Last season i got fresh soil. We did 2 runs at or about 9-10 weeks each run. The soil hasn't leached at all since we have pannels and the containers are underneath a roof. I hate to go out and buy another couple yards of fresh soil. I was wondering about getting some ammendments and try and re charge my soil i guess you can say. My buddy was trying to tell me about some fox farm bullshit, but in the past i found it to be to hot. The soil is from Cloverdale CA. Big Rootz, Thanks

sdd420 has completed 5 grow reports. Click to see my Grow Reports
Check the organic soil thread it has several recipes for recharging used soil aka living soil. It’s amendments for sure but you can add the beneficial microbes too check on amazon for those .
Peace sdd

yup, they make a veg bloom and a 555 . I like it better than dr earth it has better sourced ingredients, is a bit finer milled, and is local for me. They recommend 1 cup per ft3 but i go half that since i feed with other top dress amends teas ect and also bc im amending old soil, like you. Last couple years i got the green trees recipe and bought the ingredients in bulk myself, it was a few totes for two gardens, but it was pretty easy, they call it the 'ag pack', and greentrees is just premixed and fine milled 'agpack'

I make a tea to water in the holes/beds/pots a few days before planting as well, activate the herd a bit

bust a few bags of compost down on it an mix in with some kelp and rock dust. if you can find bio char that stuff really does wonders in the long haul. a mulch layer of leaves or wood chips on top of the bed will drastically boost microbe activity and will really help a TON with moisture retention. just some food for thought.

I have a dry tea compost mixture. Its Boogie Brew, local. there is a base and boost. it calls for a half cup of each per 5 gallons of water. i was thinking of sprinkling that into the soil? my drip lines would clog if i ran a 50 gallon drum of that. Or i could hand water it into my soil, its gonna be a pain in the ass though

I enjoy hand watering myself. I drive down to the lake and fill up 5 gallon containers. Early spring and late fall can be a challenge though. Tall cold waves hitting you kind of sucks, no it really sucks! But I try to enjoy every aspect of growing. My well water at the house has a very high Ph level and would quickly stress the plants. Peace
