The whole subject is faisinatcng and I love how they are committed to using everything.Keep up the great work, I am loving reading and learning from you all. As for the Toms, I used the same soil as you cellar mouse, and I’m not sure it is entirely the culprit. I have good toms and crappy ones all using the same soil, I’m leaning towards blaming the pots??!I guess it’s a learning curve and we’ll win eventually.
