Okie dokie. Well that’s going to be interesting. Living soil has living microbes and life working under the soil. You should be feeding living soil amendments.

Quoted from that site:

" When using living soil there is no need to ph your water. You also don’t want to use an RO water filter. Regardless of if you are using city water, or well water, we recommend using a sediment and carbon filter on your water. Straight city water can slowly kill your soil through the chlorine, or chloromine."

to clear up a lil… i live on 20 acres with a creek running through my property. it’s about 200 yards to the shore of lake superior. im around 20 to 30 ft above the water table, meaning “my” creek runs through a ravine through my property. my driveway alone is over 100 yards and i got a shooting range out the back at around 150 yards from my front door. all that said, i have a pretty decent well, and i’m 7 miles in any direction from signs of civilization, like a gas station or a town. i have good soil, there have been gardens all over this plot since i was a kid. got an apple orchid bout 70 to 80 yards from my door on the left side of my first field… so yeah, trying soil from a populated area, city or suburb, wouldn’t be as good.


apple orchid is to the left before tree line… garden is also left, but much closer lol. welcome to Michigan. get the neighbor’s attention by rackin off shots

Lol country life. I hear shots about afternoon to eve or at the grow. We are deep in the country. I admit I’ve added to the noise myself. Lots of land and time lol. There are large boars running around out here. I’m not trying to get mauled. Lol

Safety is key. From nature and in this industry, the people… lol.

I’m jealous of your farm life though. I’d be growing under some fruit trees for sure. Lots of bugs to mess with though I bet…
