They’re in southwest Oregon. But have other outdoor growers found success in their native/local soil? Any experiments?

Here is my grow log for this year. Much cheaper than potting soil. :wink:

I do disagree that it yields less. Maybe on a per plant basis, but not on a square foot basis.

I think it just depends on where you’re at! In the desert of southern Colorado, the native soil is not very good to grow in (without a decent amount of amendments anyways). But back in Ohio, its black gold native soil.
