New to the forum but not new to gardening. I am switching from a traditional garden to a SFG using blue barrels.

glad you\'re here Bombnuke to the forum! Not sure how the barrels will work(with the ends cut off or cut top to bottom) . Good luck in any case.

I am in the process of prepping my barrels and soil. Finding the 5 different types of compost is challenging and costly. I have access to all I can us horse manure and my own compost pile of yard/kitchen waste I just need to find three more.

I will post picks of my barrel garden in the near future I plan on lanting some time in the next ten days.

Thanks for the welcome!!!

Try lowes for components. Horse manure needs to be hot composted or WELL aged before use. Their digestive system does not kill the seeds in what they eat.

If you have your own "home made" compost, it is my understanding that you have all you need. Someone please correct me if I am wrong here.

My understanding as well, although an addition of well composted horse manure to the homemade would enrich it even more.
