Just applied my annual HB+SC+SF to my raised beds, and a bit in the yard.  Would love to hear results from others.


This shit always blows my mind - Nematodes represent 90% of all animals on the ocean floor.[16] In total, 4.4 × 1020 nematodes inhabit the Earth's topsoil, or approximately 60 billion for each human, with the highest densities observed in tundra and boreal forests.[17] Their numerical dominance, often exceeding a million individuals per square meter and accounting for about 80% of all individual animals on earth - Wikipedia.

Alright then, guess I'm the only crazy.  Not the first time.  :)


Suggest investigating...Significant potential benefits.


Trying to work up a basis for comparison of Beneficial Nematodes in mushroom substrate vs. not. 


One benefit I can state without a thought is they are natural enemies of fungus gnats. The nematodes hunt down and kill fungus gnat larvae in the soil, but are completely safe for people, pets and plants.
