That stuff is worth the price of admission. Good for veggies, and particularly good for helping to get clay soils to unlock. It worked miracles on my water repellent lawn. The original sod had been planted in 3 inches of clay at the sod farm and delivered in rolls. The lawn was a bear to water if the soil base dried out too much, and the humic granules did the trick. Word of warning: use a mask- stuffs nasty on the respiratory system.

I glad to hear that because the lawn is my next experiment to get it more pourous with compost. This will increase earthworm foraging, tunneling and verimi-poop Embarassed . Do you remember what was the formula you use for your lawn?

I broadcast the stuff with a hand broadcaster (wish I cous remember the setting). and watered it in with daily sprinkle.

Thanks for these links, has55.  I have read the home Pae of the Soil Guy  and I have bookmarked it.  Lots to learn there.
