Soil Secret #3
MAINTAINING A LIVING SOIL
1. Never putting anything chemical on the garden or the plants.
2. Feeding the soil to keep the microbes thriving with organic compost and organic natural fertilizers.
3. Turning the soil as little as possible to prevent damage to the microbes.
4. Mulching the garden to give the microbes a cozy home and a source of food. 

Here's the email, I received.the link is within it.





 

Hello Friend,
For some time now, many of you have had plenty of questions about our secret soil mix. It is the key to the High Performance Garden’s success! 
You asked, and now it’s time to deliver.
Over the past couple of months I have been writing a soil guide to help new gardeners as they create the garden of their dreams.  
The soil recipes and advice contained in this PDF are priceless. For the next couple of weeks I am giving it away for free!
Why would I do such a thing? Because I understand the many frustrations that came with your last gardening season, and I don’t want you to have another year like that.
By putting in a little bit of time into your garden’s soil today, you will reap the rewards for decades later. I’m going on 30 years of garden success because of the soil recipe I used 30 years ago in my garden.

Go on ahead and get started! I look forward to seeing how your garden flourishes! 
All you need to do is click on the link below.

Got it, did the survey and was then invited to pay for a course. The download is good and I like her videos that I have seen in the past.

Got it downloaded.  This is just my take:  It looks like you choose at least one item from each box.  From Box 1, I chose vermiculite, Box 2 peat moss, and Box 3 compost with a side dressing of worm castings.  Mix and put in some type of container or raised beds.  All that's needed to make it a SFG is a grid.  Mel got it right, maybe without even knowing what is going on underground.  Yeah Mel!!

I read th SFG book in one nights reading. I knew from the get go that was for me. No hesitation, it was the formula I have been dreaming about.
Here's my take on Mel's Mix....learn your composting, go way over the five ingredients. Even if you can't....do it.
Follow Mel's recipe to the T...and you'll have the finest growing medium on the planet.
