Nice, but it seems that you are just re-using 1/3 of your old soil, meaning that next year you have 3 times as much depleted soil? Doing it this way don't you end up with a big pile of soil that just gets bigger and bigger?

Why not use coffee ground and egg shells for your mix. It's probably cheaper and works the same is natural to boot! Otherwise, good tutorial. I'm just learning about amending soil.

The tubs he is using ate called muck baskets. In days gone by they were actually baskets used to clean horses stalls.. Which is mucking out. The terms prob more common on the race track. You can purchase heavy duty versions at places like Tractor Supply , Rural King or whatever Farm and home store is in your area. I use them every day. One more bit of info. There is a cart made esp to haul them around.. Made so they won't fall off.

I used an old medium sized kids pool and dumped all my container soil in it. I also put in peat moss, manure, 10-10-10- fertilizer worm castings and home made compost and mixed it up with a shovel. Man that's the best container soil I've ever had!
Gary H (4 месяца назад)
I just keep the soil in the pots over the winter and in April dump them all in the old kids pool and add all the amendments that I mentioned above. You can add whatever you want as well. This was a huge success and I will continue to do it in the years to come. The Tomatoes that I grew in them were the best container plants I ever grew. I think adding the peat moss was great because it helps a little to contain the moisture. It will certainly revive the old soil.
Michelle Pollock (4 месяца назад)
Can you keep the soil in it for a very long period of time? I'm concerned that the soil might rot if it is sitting in plastic till next spring. Is that crazy?

I got inspired by your video and it was a nice day out so I amended the soil on all my outside containers , the problem is that it's too early to transplant my seedlings here in NJ, do you think it's Ok to cover them with plastic until I transplant my seedlings? don't want the rain to wash off all the good stuff before the plants get to it.
Hollis & Nancy's Homestead (6 месяцев назад)
It will be fine. Just add a little more Bone Meal and/or Blood Meal depending on what you want to grow when you are ready to transplant 👍

What do u do with all your reclaimed soil? Theoretically it should grow every year.
Brian Ramsey (6 месяцев назад)
Hollis & Nancy's Homestead I hear u. I'm only three years into gardening I use large containers. To be honest I don't do a great job at identifying deseases that are unpardonable soil born. Been saving most soil and adding to. Not Ideal but potting mix is expensive.

Came back to this video to get ready for spring planting. I've noticed some homesteaders on YouTube also like to use Azomite. Is that too much on top of what you've already added? I do mostly container gardening to avoid trampling by the dogs. Now we have a few rodents in the neighborhood, and will have to do something to protect plants from them,too. The So. Cal sun burned most of my veggies last summer, so will try mulch and shade cloth this time. Still learning and trying to get it right. Thank you for sharing what you've learned! God bless you!

I would like to know how to add zinc to my soil. All I can find is by using used coffee grounds. This would also add acid, I don't believe I need the acid. Could I grind up a zinc tablet & add that to the soil? Also I need to say that we can ONLY grow using pots, we have Way to many trees in our yard (1/2 a block) to plant in the ground. Also I would like to know how to "grow" earth worms & collect the rich stuff. Maybe you have one of your Great videos on that.

What do you think of using finely ground egg shells? I have been using these along with my bone meal & if it is going to be an inside potted plant I only use the egg shells as the bone meal Really smells Bad. I also have used Espen Salts, what is your opinion?
Hollis & Nancy's Homestead (8 месяцев назад)
I use both👍
DyanaSue Foster (8 месяцев назад)
I really like your potato grow videos, they will be a big help. Our potatoes didn't turn out to well last year. The reclaim the soil well helpful too. I used bone meal but not the lime & blood meal. I will be adding these this year. Thanks!

Thanks so much for the prompt reply, Sir. I generally grow my plants (for kitchen garden) in a net house. Here in tropical lands, we need net houses because it's mostly hot and often very rainy. So plastic roofing and net walls all around. My basil get partial sun - in the mornings and a bit in the afternoons. I love these plants in my kitchen but they always look so fragile and lean. I heard they need pruning? I've never done it. Don't know how to. Thanks for your attention again. I am watching your tomato cages just now. Superb.
PARANORMAL (1 год назад)
Thanks! I'll do that.
Hollis & Nancy's Homestead (1 год назад)
+PARANORMAL I suggest planting them in containers. Give them some blood Meal when you plant them. Give them morning sun and afternoon shade. I don't prune mine and they are huge

Ok makes sense.thanks for responding back and keep up the good work
Hollis & Nancy's Homestead (1 год назад)
+Mad Max Thanks for watching!! There is an initial investment to get set up. After that there is a tremendous savings on potting soil. Before I reclaimed my soil I bought 3 pallets of soil for the year. Now I don't buy any potting soil. I still buy Black Kow and Peat but most of my cost was potting soil.

Do you do the same process for raised beds from one one year to the next
Hollis & Nancy's Homestead (1 год назад)
+Ronald Forristall For my raised beds I add Black Kow each year with fertilizer in the hole when I plant something
Danisha Morris (1 год назад)
Is there a reason you do this by the wheelbarrow instead of just doing the entire reclaimed soil bin at once?
Hollis & Nancy's Homestead (1 год назад)
+Danisha Morris The reclamation box will fill completely up by the end of the growing season. To do the entire box at once the box would have to be 66% larger and to blend the peat and Black Kow would be back breaking. Using a 6 cu ft wheelbarrow makes the job manageable. When I run out, I return to the reclamation box and fill the wheelbarrow 1/3 full and mix up another batch 👍👍

why did you construct that bin to store your reclaimed soil?  Can't you just pile it up in a corner somewhere out of the way?  Love your videos.  Your garden is beautiful.
Michelle Pollock (4 месяца назад)
What if you put landscape fabric on the ground? It seems like a lot of money to spend on the box. I was thinking maybe making a bottomless wooden box to put my used soil in and my finished compost to keep until next spring.
Hollis & Nancy's Homestead (1 год назад)
+David Roberie I made the reclamation box so I can control moisture, grass/weed encroachment, insects and ants. If I leave it on the ground it turns into a pile of mud, bugs and weeds. This method has been very efficient for me. I especially like that the soil does not come in contact with the ground. 👍👍👍. Thank you so much for watching our videos!! Welcome to the family ❤️❤️🐶

Hi Hollis and Nancy. Just found and subscribed to your channel, loved the one you did on Bok Choi and will definitely help me improve my production, thank you. Can I suggest that you look around for a cement mixer that you can use to do your soil mixing ? I mixed like you do now but once I found a cement mixer going real cheap I jumped at it and it has lifted a huge burden from my workload, and all my mixes are blended perfectly. Thank you for your videos, and have a blessed day too.

Hi there, I live in New York (subtropic weather varying climate) and I'm both building/growing in a lined cedar raised garden bed (2.5W x 2'D x 16'L) for the first time but am having great difficulty deciding how to best fill it, Opinions vary its a bit confusing. I have considered using bags of "raised bed soils" but I then read disaster reviews lol and I really want my vegetables to be successful given the expense of this project could you please advise? Thanks :)

+ITLNMAM1 If your city does not have a composting facility, go to your local retail nursery and ask for bags of organic compost
Hollis & Nancy's Homestead (1 год назад)
+ITLNMAM1 You are very welcome. I have no specific recommendation for the dry peat. It is readily available at LOWES and fairly cheap. For the compost, call your city composting facility. They sell it and deliver it. The compost facility in my city of Newport News. Virginia sells it for 25 bucks/yard. It has a Ph of 6.0. For the cow manure I do recommend Black Kow. I have used this product for decades. I like it because it has been aged and ready to use without burning my plants. I have had no problem with weed seeds in the product at all. It has a nutritional value of .5-.5-.5. I recommend blending these 3 components together thoroughly and filling your raised bed
