Haven't done a grow thread in a while but planting season is finally here at 52N in the Strawberry Patch and my ladies are raring to go.
I've been using my variation of the Tom Hill basic recipe for the past 2 seasons with great success and have mixed up a double batch this year and adding Oyster Shell.
I mixed the ingredients a couple weeks ago on a large black tarp and watered it in then heaped it to one side and covered it with the rest of the tarp. Been mostly overcast and cool here so I am 4 days behind schedule compared to previous seasons.
The Mix :
6 x 56liter bags of Black Gold enriched potting soil
1 bale Promix HP
3 bags composted Sheep manure (doubled up)
33 pounds of organic steamed Bone Meal (doubled up)
1/3 of a large bag of Perlite
10 + pounds of Granulated Canadian Gypsum(doubled up)
4 pounds Dolopril (doubled up)
**added 4 pounds Canadian crushed Oyster Shell
and approx. 110 gallons of used soil from the 2 holes in the greenhouse which makes this a double batch.
So that will make for approx. 220 gallons of mixed soil.
To that I watered in a 55 gallon mix of Hygrozyme (20ml per gallon), Crosby's Black Strap Molasses (7.5ml per gallon) and Sea Storm (20ml per gallon)…… then covered and let it cook for a couple weeks.
Today I am filling the two 60 gallon holes in the ground and will divide the rest of the mix for containers.
what am I growing with all this soil you ask????
