I know soil gets bashed a lot by the hydro crowd (especially when people bring their dirt indoors), but soil is fascinating! In the space equivalent to your thumbnail you can find billions of organisms, making soil one of the most complex ecosystems on our planet. University of Arizona’s Biosphere 2 is currently conducting the ongoing LEO study, which is a longitudinal examination of microbiology as it forms over time. The results will provide a foundational understanding of how life comes to be. Interestingly, nobody reading this post will ever get to see the finished product…why? You’ll be dead! The final results wont be published until around the time my grand kids are old…so yeah, it’s, like, complex and stuff.
The outdoors and soils go hand in hand like camping and s’mores, but I’m always surprised when I go into a facility and see a no till setup…it touches my little agrarian heart!
I love building super soils; whether it’s finding the perfect recipe for my cannabis plants or making some long-term food for my citrus trees, I want to feed those soils since they feed my plants…and the soil life cycle continues. Do you build super soils? Do you have a great blend we all should try? Does your oyster shell to feather meal ratio just crush it? Why is your elemite superior to my azomite? Are you growing your own fungus on old oats (oh yeah, you can do that) or do you have a preferred mycorrhizae? @memberdirectory, let’s talk about soil blends.
