So, today I thought we might do something a touch random and a bit lighter than some posts have been. Basically, I was mixing six bags of soil with additives and we've one wheelbarrow. Doing the same process six or more times is annoying and boring, so I made it interesting and got it done. Think of it as turning chores or homework into a quest, if you will. Without further ado, the recipe:
1 bag potting soil (used LG) (dark brown/black base)
1/3 bag worm castings (near-black)
3 cups perlite (white volcanic rocks)
1-2oz kelp meal (green, fine powder)
1-2oz bone meal (grey-white)
1-2oz blood meal (blue-black)
1-2oz alfalfa meal (green and a bit pellet-y)
1-2oz root-start fertilizer (brown and a bit pellet-y)
Each ingredient generally has a different color. Consequently, if inspiration strikes or you're bored, you can make patterns in the soil. Here's a few I came up with today:
Make the most of the materials you have, keep life interesting, and let your imagination play.
Have a good night, everyone.
