Frustrated finding large organic container dirt recipe
I have built a 30 cubic foot container off of my deck for my organic vegetable garden I was hoping to start this weekend.
I cannot find the proper answer to creating a base dirt mixture. At this point I have been scared away from MG Organic Soil, and am willing to put the components together from scratch. I just need to know what ratios.
The bed is 7\' x 3\' x 1.5\' deep and stands 15 feet off the ground. I have a goodyear liner that is tapered for drainage.
I would like to know 2 things for getting started
What the soil components for making dirt are?
And what is the mixing recipe?
I would figure that I would mix in wheelbarrow or directly in bed at 3 cubic foot increments.
I also plan to use mixture for hanging garden. I have built an Arbor on top of the deck. I was going to do a hanging garden off the arbor for upside down tomatoes, squash and cucumbers that would use lattice across the arbor for support.
For hanging pots I was going to use 5 gal poly pails with plats coming out cutouts in pail sides
