Al's 5-1-1 mix
I think I finally accomplished the making of Al's 5-1-1 mix.I managed to get pine bark nuggets, perlite and peat moss (I found a huge bale at HD), CRF, and lime from Espoma.
I tried to stay as closely as possible to the measurements, tho I have no sifts. I used my hands to break up nuggets, bz they varied in size, some up to 1".
Anyway, after I pot up some tomato seedlings, do I water them right away? The mix has been sitting for two weeks bz I have been too busy to transplant the tomatoes.
I am so nervous about the success of this method so I am going to try one tomato plant in a small container. If it works, I will transplant to a bigger container to continue the growth.
