I will not mix 1/2 potting soil and 1/2 manure compost. I'll use just 1 part manure compost to 3 parts potting soil, then.
I've saved about 6 dozen egg shells to grind up, but I read last night where the calcium doesn't even release until it's composted for awhile. Guess I'd be better off just adding those to the compost bin for next season, huh?
So much conflicting info out there.
I just want to make homemade salsa, darn it!
Pepper plants are absolutely thriving!
