I bought too much, does anyone need MM soil near Orlando?

Post  corba on 9/16/2010, 4:45 pm


I bought too much, does anyone need MM soil near Orlando?

I have (@my cost):

1/2 truck load organic mushroom compost (from an Organic Farm)($25)
1/2 bag Peat Moss (Home Depot) ($5)
1 x 4cu bag course horticultural vermiculite ($15, I actually have 2 bags available, but all you'll probly need just one)

this is enough for 2 4x4 6 or 8 inch deep plots, you might want to add a couple bags of Home Depot Compost to maximize bio-diversity, or you can dig some of my partially composted horse manure from my 5 acre ranchette no-charge.

For pickup in Oviedo Florida ASAP

If this doesn't sell in the next week, I'll start another plot, so act quickly Smile

Thanks.

Just from my own experience, leftover MM never goes to waste!

Don't forget that it isn't a bad idea to have a trash can full for when you are ready to plant the next group. Need to top off the boxes at that time. Smile

Well, what a nice way to introduce yourself! Mighty neighborly of you. (Although I am with boffer - I wouldn't be too quick to get rid of it!)

That leftover MM is great for container planting. I have three varieties of lettuce and some Northern Lights Swiss Chard growing on my deck. Makes salad pretty easily. I am going to try to bring in the swiss chard and try to continue growing under lights this winter, or if it does not like the change in location, I will just start some new seeds inside.
