Just wanted to say I am so happy you guys did the episode on the adam dunn show. I am just getting into organics, switching from bottled nutes, and I’ve learned so much from you guys. Please you and coot keep going on the adam dunn show and cranking out the organic episodes. Also I’m thankful you put together this report and the IPM kit, will definitely be getting this soon.
Anyways keep up the good work and thanks so much!

One question that I was asked yesterday to which I did not give a very complete answer so I’ll do that here. The question was about the safety of neem tree products (oil, meal/cake, leaves, bark and roots) for human consumption.

Here’s the answer: “In Ayurvedic mixes and medicines over 70% contain ‘something’ from the neem tree. 70% is not a typo”

Neem oil, et al. is a case where science is catching up with culture. This paradigm is found in many areas of organic & sustainable farming like companion planting which may one of the most misunderstood dynamics, i.e. the how & why they function as they do. “What a Plant Knows” is a good start in coming to a working understanding.

If you have been reading about cultivating indoors with organic soil then you've heard of SubCool's Super Soil. I admit to starting with this mix and thought I was really doing something special when I first went for it. I bought all the stuff and was really excited to use it.

My results were actually pretty good, but I've since moved on I think you should too.

Besides the "base soil" being purchased instead of made from scratch, I have many other issues. All in all this taking bagged soil and adding worm castings and nutrients isn't a bad idea, but it can be improved upon and money can be saved.

Here is the Recipe: 8 large bags of a high-quality organic potting soil with coco fiber and mycorrhizae (i.e., your base soil) 25 to 50 lbs of organic worm castings 5 lbs steamed bone meal 5 lbs Bloom bat guano 5 lbs blood meal 3 lbs rock phosphate ¾ cup Epson salts ½ cup sweet lime (dolomite) ½ cup azomite (trace elements) 2 tbsp powdered humic acid

Now I'll go through each item: Read more.....
