Soil, fertilizers, compost, and more can all be so confusing when getting your garden started. This episode breaks it down in a very simplified manner that will help you know the next step you need to take to get your garden ready for the season.

I mention a ton of resources, including:
My seed starting recipe:
4 parts coco coir (or peat moss)
1 part compost, worm castings, or a mix
.5 part vermiculite (sometimes more depending on the weather. In warmer weather, I add more because it holds moisture)
.5 part perlite
Sprinkle of azomite according to package application instructions

Mix everything well and moisten before sowing seeds in the mix
