OK so how are we going to grow high Brix 1st. Very 1st thing is to get a soil test OK get us all tests were told that we should farm scientifically. Get a soft test I can't stress that too much otherwise we're dealing with unknowns and you know you'll get some real problems. Because of what's been put on the soil before because what God did it the the flood. And if we have that sort of test we could be a 1000 miles apart and you read yours and I'll have a copy of yours there and get off the internet and I'll know exactly what to do with your soil there 1st of all what are we going to do how we're going to take a soil sample we're going to go around and get. If you use a clean bucket what I do is to take a 5 gallon bucket and put a brand new clean plastic bag in it there now you want to take saw samples from different parts of your garden room if you have beds 1 May take a little bit from each bed if you have soil that is quite different you might need to salt test if you have soil that has been treated differently you might need more than one saw test but if that soil has all been treated pretty much the same and just take a little bit from each red. I end up with a Bally gallon of material to spread that out. Again on a brand new clean plastic bag you don't want this polluted at all mix it all together so you have a good average and from that you want to take about one quart of that material put it in a one cord Ziploc bag make it a little less than a quart you fill it totally full they won't fit in that small flat rate box they're OK. Unless you are. A big pharm. For the bank you're going get S. one which is soil analysis with recommendations that's $50.00 OK that's the same price I pay for it goes to international AG limes then go down to Boron you need Boron they're OK those 2 you need for sure that's going to add another $10.00 So this is going to be $60.00 that you owe to the lab and that's a total $60.00 there. Tells you where to send it. I need to know in order to help you I need to know how many square feet your garden is so just take a measurement and give me the square footage of that garden. OK he send it down here to international ag labs This is the Hague lab that was started by Dr Kerry reams. And. That's about it. Now if you're big pharma might have you do other things but this is all we need at this point go to the post office get the smallest flat rate box they have all came. That one quarter ziplock bag. Not totally full will just fit in there very nicely you put this in with that you can send these people check or you can use a credit card. And down at the bottom here it says Would you like us to send a copy of your results to your dealer if you check yes I'll get a copy of it and when you get your copy I want you to call me and then I'll be able to pull this up on the Internet and you and I'll be looking at the same report I'll be looking at your soil and you'll be looking at it in years and will know exactly what to do also going to look like. OK let's just go to this we'll have to work off of this all right this is what it's going to look like so this is a soil ananas analysis report and have your name up here this happens to be the plane hillside minister Cademy in Auburn California you have a lab number here in a day I'm going to need your name and this number right here lab results to know whether to pull that up. And unless it's a very new report I will need the data if you have one that's a year so I need to date only to OK So we started here with humus that just means organic material when it has totally been degraded and is back to a form that your plants can take that those nutrients up again and in this case we need a level of 30 to 40 and we have 30 that's very unusual and very good this is for Raised beds there and then we go down to the nitrates and they're right on an ammonia manyas are also nitrogen so. They do a different thing in the soil and so we need to bring that up that's an easy fix OK now look at phosphorus here we want a level of $174.00 and we have 1004 $110.00 is not a problem that's a huge problem OK that's a huge problem now how on earth does this get so far out of balance. It was because the teachers there and people who ran just garden in the past they go to the garden store and they would say well that's a good product for me to put in here and so somebody would say in the story so well this is a good product or this helps or somebody else's views such and such and so they get it also maneuvers can make this go away up Ari. Compost can make that go away up out of balance now the phosphorus. The phosphate in the soil stays where we put it you can't leech it out we talked about leeching a solid I can't leaf that phosphate out it just stays there. It's a problem any time we have too much of one thing it's going to make an imbalance someplace else and things will grow in that garden but you will not get good food and you're not going to get food that tastes the way we want it to and that gives you the nutrients and the healing power that we want to have. So what do we do with a problem like this Well there are several things one is we can dilute that let's say that I would bring in some new soil these are raised beds and so the soil has a tendency to shrink down over the time so let's say I could take an equal amount say we had this much soil in those beds and I could add that much more on top and I could get a soil that had 0 phosphate OK so if I had 0 phosphate and I'm mixing it 5050 with this what have I done stead of 1410 I've got 705 right so right away we cut it way down there now some of your familiar with double digging so if you dig deeply and you can mix that subsoil it's not going to have 0 phosphate but it's going to have less and so that's a way of doing it another thing that we do is to crop it out now that takes a long time. But how do we crop it out. Grow things that are heavy feeders that means corn that means tomatoes. Anything in the squash family including cucumber so. Those are all heavy feeders all right when that garden is through and the slow flies. And you put that stuff in a compost pile when that compost is ready you don't put it back into the garden OK Go use it on your landscaping or lawn or some place else don't put it back in the garden it's going to take several years but over a period of time you can get that down some OK. Now here's potassium and we want 167 and we've got 529 so we're way over in the potassium also. Let's go to calcium counts him is 3000. This is pounds per acre $3000.00 pounds per acre. I want you to look above that number and below that number and realise you need more calcium than everything else in that let's put together OK you need a tremendous amount of calcium there. OK. Let's go to magnesium Next we need for $29.00 where to get to $63.00 that are magnesium is down that's an easy fix sodium now we're going to parts per 1000000 here that little sign says that we need less than $35.00 parts per 1000000 and we have 4 that is very very good because that means we can use the ocean water salts to very good example. Advantage in this here. Let's go to urge you can write in there that energy release per gram per 2nd energy release per gram per 2nd all that is telling me is that we have conductivity in the soil if I if I come out to your. Farm or your garden will have a little probe up put it in the ground it will tell me the conduct of it in the soil doesn't tell me what's in the soil this tells me what's in the soil but it tells me whether there's conduct of any there or not OK and that's important because the plants are actually living off of that energy in the soil we say they're living off of. Pollen count semen potassium and nitrogen and so forth and they are but it's the reaction. That creates the energy that those plants are really using so that that is important nexus or part or R.P.G. right in there that there is oxygen reduction potential. We want 28 and we're right on there the next is the PH A 6 creamy important number we really want to be for fruits and vegetables we want to be someplace between 6 and 7 and we're at 6.8 we're just find their comfort. We want. Conference Inc manganese born and so for these are all trace minerals and here we want to be towards the high side we want to be within the desired range but we want to be towards the high side for fruits and vegetables they're so calm for we really want to be $2.00 And we're at $15.00 OK we're always a balance there OK let's go over to iron next we want to be at about 25 and we're 37 very high not too bad on not too worried about that number let's go to Zinc the home and I need to be at 6 or maybe a little less and we're at 23.8 We are just out of sight on this. Menu nice This is a very very important mineral different than magnesium above this is a trace mineral man guineas and it does a lot of interesting things and so one of the key things it does it brings the spark of life into that seed so that it will sprout and if there's not enough manganese in the soil the seed won't even sprout. And if it does sprout and grow with this low of manganese it will have a hard time making seeds which means it's going to have a hard time flowering and 13 and making seeds there that number's gotta go up and this is often. Low on soil tests this is particularly important on your fruit trees too OK let's go to Boron next and we need to be between one into this is that 1.2 So we're medium where OK there we don't need to test test sulphur or organic matter and so forth they're OK So that tells us the farm loans and then in a half hour to solve the problem these are our recommendations a skiff that for right now let's go over. A couple of pages and this says native soil over here was raised vents OK They have beautiful nice raised beds about that I. Did a beautiful job with it but now we're at the native soil here now the humus is 20 so it's way down the nitrates are way up we're OK with that the ammonia also nitrogen is way way down Incidentally the the nitrogen is do 2 different things here the council nitrates are going to make your leaves in your stems girl OK so if you want lettuce and chargin cabbage whatever that Red Cross you want you want that calcium nitrate if you want. Things to flower to flower and fruit you want the ammonia nitrogen OK and we can switch your plant from growing leaves and stands to flowers and for it it's simple it's easy and you can see it within a week or 2 they're OK so we're way down here this is an easy fix not a problem there look at the phosphorus here. We have a deficiency of phosphorus here we want 174 we only have 86 here but we have one freedom is Page 1410 OK. This is the same same school yard. There what we're what we're having them do is to take this native soil and sift it because it has a lot of rocks in it. And then we take that and we are mixing it with some of this stuff to dilute and to to make better beds they're OK. Potassium is to 2 of 2 that's that's where it should be about right the calcium here is way down remember the previous page it was over 4000 here. Magnesium we need to bring on. Sodium is low again which is good. McKayla see the coppers right where it should be instead of way over the. Top here an iron will this iron is high as high or we might have got a nail in there something incidentally when you're taking the soil sample use a clean instrument that means one without rust on it OK So if you've got a rusty shovel when you're taking your soil sample you're going to get iron higher than you than than it really is OK if you don't have anything but a rusty tool then use it and with your hand take that soil. From a part of that that did not touch the rust there. One came. OK here are zinc is so low previous organising was just that zinc was actually toxic there it was so high here we actually have to add some zinc and then the manganese here is at $13.00 says Hi we've got to we've got to bring that up and the boron is a little lower we've got to bring that up there OK So. So now we go to the to the. Recommendations and what they do is put this together for us you see that some of these things are in here in a core half a pan of one pound quarter pound their profiles and square feet and for most people it is. Far easier and less expensive there's a company back there not international and glass but another one that we send this report to and they measure these things out exactly. And then they mix it. Force and then they ship it out in the large flat rate boxes with the US Post Office that's the least expensive way to ship the stuff it's expensive it's heavy and it's far less expensive to ship to ship it that way it's been a real boon to this business into gardens. It's far less expensive than going to the store and trying to pick out each one of these things individually because you end up listing copper for instance cost me well over. $200.00. For a. For a bag of copper and years so a little of it this is a quarter of a pound you use a little of it and it ends up staying in the garage for the next 50 years there besides if you were to take all of this you would need to mix it all evenly you can't spread can't spread a pound of something evenly over a 1000 square feet when this is all mixed together and then you broadcast it and dig it in every plant is going to get what it means OK now this is this is a 3 part. Program what we're looking at here is the high bricks program it's a 3 part program to make your soil fertile. So 1st we have to put the right things in the soil then we have to put the right. Life in the soil now we need microbes we need. Really we need these little critters under our feet to digest the soil in the rock our powers there but we need to give them the right minerals they can't manufacture that so we give them the right material and then what is going to make your soil more fertile than everything else we do is to make that soil alive and as we go through this list here. Of the recommendations down here we come to something called Eden What on earth is. It's a product that. Looks like kelp kelp a simply the food or the carrier for what we're doing is putting a life into that soil. And when that it's in a spore form it's a dormant form so when that gets water and food which is the kelp. And normal growing temperatures that's about 60 degrees and higher those things come to life and they will multiply very fast and in a short time you've got an army of workers for you under the ground that's more important than everything else that you do put together OK How often do we test the soil. It depends on the size of the garden OK if you were a big farm. We would be testing several times during the year. Because in a big farm if I can raise or that farmer can raise or lower his as production by 10 percent that might make the difference between a very successful career or bankruptcy in a backyard garden usually every other year OK so. So rather than tested every year maybe every other year and a backyard garden if I plant an extra tomato plant or 2. Will make up the difference we're not trying to make a living off of off of the garden here we're trying to make healing good food for you there. OK so that's what this product even is and then let's go over the next page. And says transplant formula this is the 2nd place where we're putting life into that sort of transplant formulas a grey powder which is rock powders these are different types of of rocks which are. Food for the microbes there again we have them in. The microbes in a dormant form and again with the right conditions water and temperature they're going to come to life and work for you OK. If you put a line underneath that transplant formula that would be the end of the 1st of these 3. Things that we need to do to make your soil very very fertile OK so now let's go to the nutrient Grinches Now if we have a huge meal at Thanksgiving. Can we. Then not eat until Christmas OK but most people will put a whole bunch of stuff on their garden and then they won't do anything else on it for the season there. Do the nutrient drenches you need and you need the 1st part here to give the basics into that soiled minerals there now we need to nutrient French's and you put those on. Every 3 weeks here sometimes every 2 weeks to every 4 weeks depending on your soul test there but here every 3 weeks we're going to take a product called Cal mag plus that's calcium magnesium Plus according to our soil test here we need a cow's hand we need magnesium we need it some other things it's all in that formula there so we're going to take one quarter of that we're going to put it in 30 gallons of water and we're going to put in lots of water there too that we're going to add 2 ounces of Zahle that's a humane this is this is now the 3rd place that we are putting life into that soil this is a liquid Now the other 2 are dry but we're putting life into that soil and we're stimulating and we're feeding it at the same time it's very important that we get the right things going there. Then we're going to spread that all out over this 1000 square foot garden an easy way to do that is to if you have a hose and sprayer is to put in the 2 ounces of Xeon. And fill the rest up with the Cal mag plus. And just spray until it's all gone OK when it's all empty spray a little more so that you wash the fertilizers off the leaves and it'll be just fine there now there's another product over here to Oh indeed that stands you can right in here that's organic nutrient drainage Oh indeed organic nutrient drench now your soil recommendations will be different. It could be similar but it will be different from this because your soil is different from this so 1st time we're going to use Cal mag Plus we're going to add the 2 ounces in him and 30 gallons of water 3 weeks later we're going to take a quart of O.M.D. organic nutrient wrench we're going to add the 2 ounces was in him and we're going to do the same thing 30 gallons of water over that we're going to go back and forth don't mix those 2 together they're giving your plants and different things OK and you want to at different times all right OK if you put a line underneath here that ends the 2nd part of this fertility program here. Now we go to Fuller sprays and this is feeding the plant through the stomach or now this is done weekly before we're doing it every 3 weeks now this is done weekly All right so you need a you need a spray or a clean spray or not when you use ground up in. A and. And now we're using only one gallon before using 30 gallons now we're just using one gallon and we're using 4 outs is of either bricks plaster or qualify depending on what we want to do here these are 2 different products All right let's look at the qualify. So we fill up. A gallon sprayer and let's say for answers of qualify for leafy greens cabbage broccoli cauliflower you can write in there for written vegetables any any revengeful except carrots The one exception here but. Now so you can use this on just about anything now. And then it says use bricks plaster on everything else bricks plaster is going to chew move your plant towards flowering and fruiting it like to meet a plant is that big. I don't want to flower and fruit because a plane either is leaning towards flowering unfurling or making vegetative growth I want my tomato plant to be at least at least this tall before I want to push it towards flowering and Ferdie so when it's big enough does matter with a tomato or a cucumber pepper make sure that that plant is big enough that you want to change it into this flowering Ferdie most There now there will always be some flowering and fruiting portion a plant and some vegetative growth when my plants are this small my tomato plants and the small I'm going to use qualify on it going to wait till it's big enough and then I'll switch it over. And it it will produce far far more. OK so I'm going to do that. Every week OK And now I want to go in the next one here says enthuse Fuller's for a weekly. But we're going out to 2 ounces there it says as needed for plants stress right in alongside of that word stress right in vigor plant vigor OK that might be a better. Illustration here this is a very good product but if your plant needs a boost. You could use this is it's for plant vigor they're. Down here. OK What kind of sprayer do you use just any kind of a hand pump are you OK what do we use when we're putting out the nutrient drenches good question. I'm like that hose and sprayer that you just it's a quarter and you just. Just screw it on the end of your hose and that's an easy way to do it. If if you if you don't do that take a 30 gallon. Trash can fill it up with water put these things in and just water out by hand it's just fine there. We want to under the water the underside of the leaves that most of the system on or under the leaves and on the stem and now farmers when they go out and fall or feed they just blow this stuff everywhere and it gets gets it adequately you do want to do it either early in the morning or late evening. Or should say early evening if you want to do it maybe starting an hour before sunrise until an hour after sunset why because. That's those are the times when the song birds sing. There's more oxygen in the air and that turns the song birds on to sing the birds songs open system on a larger OK. And so it's an interesting thing a phenomena how it works. You can have a song bird in a totally dark cage and if you increase the oxygen that bird will start to sing no light at all but it will start to sing but you see there's a time of the day when there's more oxygen or less oxygen in the air and and this works very very nicely there OK. All right and I talked about enthused let's use that for plant vigor a good product but you see we were cutting that product down to 2 ounces now instead of 4 ounces don't overdo it through this in the right proportions. Is 35 minutes one way from my house to this garden at the church and I went there one day with for class and did not have anything to measure with and so I just this was early in my experience there and I just dumped some stuff in and sprayed there I just about ruined the whole garden ended up with little black spots on every leaf and every green bean and every zucchini and everything. So if you do it correctly follow these directions right don't think it's a little bit as good a lot is not better. OK. Let me give you another example on that we all have lots of salt in our bodies I cut my finger my blood is salty if I get a tear. Drop a sweat into my mouth is very salty we die quickly without that salt if I take 5 little teaspoons of salt doesn't matter whether it seemed 90 or any other solved by take it at one time that's a lethal dose that's enough to kill me OK so what's necessary for life for us and our plants out of balance is absolutely toxic there OK now here it says fuller spray monthly. They were going to one and a half ounce away had 10 X. and some dextrose and whatever there's a place for this but not in a backyard garden that's just cross that off if you've got a backyard garden you've got a farm we're going to use that that's going to be beneficial to you but for your own backyard. OK. This is an interesting result this is a little Fuji apple tree that I had planted like argue. This this is in the middle of the day this is slow in the background and you can see that the temperatures 32 degrees maybe 31 degrees there. And Missile Appletree didn't know it was winter it just kept right on growing. By the by the end of the winter and spring. Just a few of the leaves on the top were still green the rest and had fallen there but an interesting thing is that you'll find that when you use the ocean water in the right proportions on your fruit trees it acts as a bit of and a freeze. There the soils are more. The sap is more condensed and that's a benefit there. OK that's. That's my sister's hand in there to give you a perspective that came up. OK We cannot buy food like this anywhere except for very few market gardens. Were growing this way and we need listen if you have any interest at all and doing a market garden we need this and we need it locally in all of our different communities here. We could do a tremendous amount of good for people if we would have food grown this way. Another thing is if people are used to eating Richwoods and whatever they're not going to stay on an even diet unless it tastes good none of us are going to stay on diet unless it tastes good so this is a way to just really increase the flavor there I do recommend different growing systems for different people here. Now the same basic ingredients were during our include a nice garden system. How they are supplying compost minerals fertilizers will be very different OK this is this is an ant and this is an example of grow your own. Nutrition Program this is a 4 foot wide by 8 foot long box and there are 2 of them together OK that's the smallest that this particular system goes in and it was very very productive there is another picture of that those 2 boxes together OK. OK this is the most expensive per square foot absolutely lost expensive per square foot it's the most convenient for small gardens. 2 of these for my 8 boxes to about 15 it might make good sense if you're very busy professional person this might be the simplest and easiest way of doing it don't add any supplements to it. The salt test is going to tell us exactly what to put there do not add anything to that will just cause it to go out of balance there's another 6 weeks after planting that is very very productive. That's in Placerville California and. That is Tracy Blevins guard cursing Cameron. Can I ask you to come up front do you want to do that now. I'm going to make a spectacle of Tracey here. Tracy when she came to. The less than a year ago I could not look up and she was bent over like this and she'd have to look at me like this and it was difficult there. Tracy has been eating out of this garden. And stand up straight Tracy. Almost almost there. Praise Yes You know that's what he wants he wants with this. And when we follow the plan the results are there in the abundance is there to share and still be well ourselves and he and Donna Donna family been extremely supportive and generous. And he's done a lot of the work because the agreement ways we would exchange services and elaborate and I didn't realize how much work their way in the garden I said I'm so sorry people you do more in the office than you do the guy in me bye bye Yeah it's a testimony yes or thank Thank you Tracy our bodies want to heal themselves God has made us so but will heal ourselves if we do the right things every time everything we do has consequences so we're either building our bodies up or returning. There. OK let's go on here see. Oh OK 3 weeks from planning we started getting produce. In Tracy's garden very simple excellent quality food and simplest way to grow a garden this is and we call this a biological garden now. It's recommended over certified organic because it's of terrier in nutrition there are no poisons there are no toxic substances our some of the materials cannot be used in certified organic gardens. We just one example of potassium sulphate. Is used in some of these gardens if it if your soil test shows that we need it. But. There are companies that go to the to the trouble and expense of certifying their potassium sulfate as organic there are others who do not and it's the same identical product OK so why make the costs go up we don't have to there other things like cousine nitrate and ammonium sulfate which we have recommended here and that you just saw. That I could never use in a certified organic garden because there are chemical. Fertilizers made in a chemical fertilizer plant we'd never get them certified organic However let's talk about calcium nitrate 1st God makes calcium nitrate every time it rains or snows or lightning strikes the ground. Out of the sky comes nitrogen. Unites with calcium in the ground and it makes calcium nitrate OK if I were going to do that if I were to bring the calcium nitrate level up to where we want it organically it's going to take me 3 to 5 years I can get it. Immediately using calcium nitrate but I can't certify that organic every time let's go to ammonium sulphate every time you go buy a. Barnyard and it stinks that's nature making money I'm sulphate if your compost pile stinks to claim things happening OK so. So we can use those products in a biological garden and we can jumpstart that garden so that you have good produce this year this season now it'll get better over the period of time but you'll have an excellent garden right from the start rather than having to certify it now some of you need to May need to certify or garden organically because of customers that required and if you want we will do it organically but it's going to be slower and more expensive. And we're not able to use some of these products say this is just some of the the produce that we have. I did a little quick calculation and basically we we ended up with. We ended up with. About $1.00 and $3.00 quarter pounds of produce out of out of. Tracey's garden per day per day you know and we didn't start counting immediately and when Anyway it's it's good all right there are those in those beds put together and I want to show you a couple of things here. I want to show you how this goes together we have in most of the United States we have a huge problem with gophers So what one is good is if you make a box. For for your garden and you put a quarter inch hardware cloth in the bottom OK so you make this you turn it upside down and you stick all that. Hardware cloth this quarter inch hardware cloth. There all the way around make sure that you have no place where the gopher can get in if if you've gotten half an inch or more especially if you've got an inch he'll go around and around that garden until he finds a way to get in now you've got him trapped in your garden OK So you know you want to make sure that he stays out don't use chicken wire that's has too big a holes and go right through that there it's probably easier if you use 2 by fours for the 1st bit there and then turn that up and then build up from that where you have these. Where the boards come together here it's a good idea to use a landscape cloth just. On the inside of that so that so that soil and water doesn't run through that way so it goes down now the roots can come and they can go through that are where cloth but make that bed at least 18 inches tall OK I've seen a lot of people that made maybe a. A 6 inch or 8 inch border around and one lady came to my classes few years back and. And she kept telling me Len she said I'm doing everything right and she always took careful notes and whatever. She says But there's something wrong with my garden so anyway I finally went out to her house and looked at her garden sure enough she had the most beautiful little plants there she had. Zucchini that was smaller than my thought. And all of her plants see she was using the right things there so all of her plants looked very healthy and very nice but what was happening her husband had made her these boxes and this and the Gophers were coming underneath every time a player rips went through that the gopher would cut it off there well we Bonzai plants by printing the vets and by tying them there. So she had the most beautiful ones I had green beans and. Zucchini and whatever they're so give yourself a least 18 inches and if you go $24.00 inches you would be better on that. I don't know any way. To. To keep the Gophers out totally Now I'm sure he's a lot of pictures of gardens that are not protected at all that are right alongside of this and we do use of a product called mole Max M O L E M A X OK what it is is castor oil. Or that when we when we use the castor bean and we squeeze the oil out of it and what's left over is this being pulp and they use that for feed for some animals and whatever all romance just really dislike that So if you put that out over your garden it's about $20.00 for murder to cover 4000 square feet you're going to have to do it several times and it's not perfect but the the Gophers go away so I tried out in my garden which is next to this one. And sure enough it worked those gophers all moved out of my garden into my lawn. It must go on OK just more of the same here there that gives you a good idea of what that works out now. This is by actual soil tests this is some of the poorest soil in our whole county our county goes from 10000 feet high to few feet above sea level. There. So so we sifted the air I'm using hardware cloth again and sifted this out and to that we put in some perlite and we also put in. When we put it we put in peat moss there peat moss has about as 0. Nutrient value we didn't want to add nutrients to this then you could put in some sand to if you needed to to lighten that soil the soil is so hard when it's dry that's hard to think and hard to dig with a pick axe and when it's wet it's so. Gummy that you know you can hardly walk in it when you walk across the dirt there and your boots have this much dirt on there OK let's go on here OK while we put this together now this isn't dry California So while we put this together it put in water every now and then. We would have enough they're all right OK. Now we're switching to the high Brix garden and this is a high Brix garden in Camino California hello get started there there I wish we had one of these in every community there is using ocean water salts using the right procedures now if you're going to go into a market garden we're going to put you on a different program. Where it's a little more complicated but you've got to mix some of these things and do the math and whatever. And take regular soil test their body to work for you there and it will cost you less per square foot less per pound to produce that you're producing there. OK let's go to garden in a box is the least expensive very easy to use medium sized gardens we're going to combine this with 10 pounds of agricultural land stone or Jepson and 2 ounces of boron and 8 ounces of absence alts now this is 10 pounds this is outs is so don't put 10 pounds in and don't forget to change this to Al says because if you put in 2 pounds of or actually kill everything. Same thing here there is no soil testing is not required but it is recommended and if you get a soil test with this. Will Very these things depending on the salt has now there are a lot of people for whatever reason that it just doesn't make sense to spend $68.00 or so just to find out. What's there maybe somebody is reading or maybe they're just. Too poor to do that. You still get a great garden where I sent these out and we've had repeat customers every everybody that I've talked to has been very pleased with the results of this this is Dr Midlanders work. Years after he is gone. All right now this is Tracy's garden that you saw earlier and those are shaped covers there this is this is my garden garden in the box which I've used there for a couple of years very productive and I have purposely done and they're. The least expensive way to grow you know soil test all materials are organic mines the use of locally purchase products. If I if I sent a. I sent you a box of limestone what you're the right kind of lime for your garden from back east like we do with the other. It would cost more for the shipping so by dislocate and will do just fine it will cover about $200.00 square foot it will go up about a 1000 square foot garden there is what it looks like in that room over there we've got a bunch of them on the table and under the table there it's going to come with. 2 bags of a product called 6 for 4 that's just the fertilizer numbers of Mannix material one bag of earthworm castings and one bag of seeing 90. This is just one pound of the sea 90 and that small. Back there. After garden is established this is where garden in a box after to establish apply the nutrient drench once per week now this is a different nutrient Grynch the other nutrient Grinch. That we talked about. You could you could put through Fertig ation system or whatever this nutrient drench is made out of. Is made on earth worm castings. Earthworm castings and. The 6 for for their year so per gallon of water you're going to use one house of each per gallon of water so if you've got a 5 gallon bucket you might want to put 5 ounces of each and mix it up it will always have a muddy residue in the bottom it's not going to dissolve totally That's good stuff just when you get to the bottom brings it out put it out on the plants it will do a great job so this you want to use one time per week on new that nutrient ranch once a week and your plants will grow and do very very well. With that that's the Sun Gold tomato and it's awful hard to get those in the market. But I'm trying to grow miniature garden and having people come to the garden class to go down and graze on those tomatoes as they are some of the sweetest it in Brook seeing food. Tomatoes you need to be about 7 or greater to have a really good tomato taste and those own sun gold tomatoes I've had up as high as 18 they've just incredibly good there this is an Early Girl tomato there and it is a very good flavor there. Is more produce out of the garden OK weekly feed one ounce per gallon of water of each there and we are out of time so we're going to go. They're making a nutrient Grange I just measured that out or no bucket and mix it up with water and put it out there. You want to measure that pretty pretty accurately there see how dirty that is. And never come clean like the other but it's good all right we use that for a transplant water and for nutrient drench the same thing OK you don't want to use the transplant water when you're putting C. from the ground. Because of the high nitrogen content it will slow down the germination mostly so we don't want to know what is this we're doing see just use plain water this media was brought to you by audio person a Web site dedicated to spreading God's word through free sermon audio and much more if you would like to know more about audio version or you would like to listen to more sermon leave it to W.W.W. dot audio Verse dot org.
