I have to say after the first page lol I've never heard of anyone beside myself saying that I'm left handed but only for writing. Good start for sure. I'm actually using great white right now too. I love it. I'm not bound to the brand and have tried many different ones with similar results. The GW is very concentrated and not so costly when you figure how long it lasts. I really like the Epsoma brand with beneficial. It's like 8 to 10$ for a 5 lb. Bag that I use alot of in pots ect.

I'm just getting started. A couple trays of peppers, Chinese eggplant and lupine right now. I need some straw so I can use these old windows as a cold box. We have so many projects this year and a seed starting shed is among them.

We are in Northern Michigan so it's very cold still. We just lost most of our snow in the last week but it is warming up and nights are going to be above freezing at least.

The Epsoma brand? It's a cheaper but quality IME fertilizer and a couple have beneficial bacteria included. I like to sprinkle a little for seedlings and have used it all the way through either indoors or out. Is that what you mean? The main box stores carry it. Wallly, HomeD and Lowes ect. Or online.

You nailed the questions! Man I've got most of my plants in my bed already I've been lazy about finishing I'll have to look up the band when I goto Walmart again. Do you have any large oak tree around your place? The bacteria and fungi I use with the store bought stuff comes from the trees in my yard. I add a lb of rice to a nylon stockin and burry it 10-18 inches(out of the frost level) where the largest roots are, I leave this for a month and harvest an beautiful and smelly nasty ball of living things that keep plants alive! You can mix it right into your soil or brew it with molasses and water for a month in a 5gal bucket and an air stone. And you water this liquid into your garden

No oaks right close anyways though I'm sure somewhere around. I've heard of a similar kind of thing burying leaf mold and a couple of things, maybe rice? In a small trench. It been a long time since I read it but it sound like a similar process to make and use the benneficials from the local soils.

Two tubs of brown oyster island for a nice fall winter harvest here. Made a small one with local chicken of the woods. I definitely prefer the seasonal fruiting in large beds vs constantly having to make bags and jars. I have 2var of my local chicken of the woods, ones a spring fruit the other is mid summer so I want patches of both. Along with the mid winter fruiting lions mane. Here comes the fun!!!

Wow great thread!!!

 

And how awesome the mushrooms in your pots growing like nature intended. Together and helping each other.

 

Pulling up a seat here, I find the bags for your potatoes interesting. I usually just use straw. Dig a trench, place potato cuttings in, cover in straw. Then as they grow you just keep piling more straw on. Has worked very well for me for years and getting your potatoes is much easier.

Just a garden update got some peppers about 12 on one plant and total about 8-10 tomatoes on 3 plants so far. Gonna look like I'll have my first harvest before the 4th of July. Then all the canning starts!
