See you made me feel lazy lol. I just mixed 5 pounds of azomite in and a 6 pound bag of tomato tone and top dressed with uprising bloom ....
The worms and castings are already in my manure so I dont add that.

Maybe I should try harder with my soil blend! I've thought about adding perlite and moss.... maybe when I have my forever garden I will! Great job!

Looking good over there!

Damn that's a lot of work! I just cover and top dress in the spring lol.
The only reason I've never used neem meal in my garden is I know neem works as an antiseptic. I've tried researching on if it kills the bacteria/fungi in the soil but there is not much to go on. Not knowing for sure makes me steer clear of it since I do everything I can to inoculate my soil.
I’ve seen soil recipes on the “FARM” with Neem Seed Meal and I have top dressed with it twice this summer. I had an early infestation of mites/aphids and sprayed once with Organacide which has Neem in it I followed a couple weeks with OG BIOWAR FOLIAR, which I truely believe in. Do some research on that stuff. Caps Beneficials?

Okay tell me about the Nectarine FFG

Sure thing,

For anyone who is curios about what ffj is and how to make it the legit way here is a reference

I have been doing it a bit differently, partly because organic brown sugar is pricey. I gather fallen nectarines from under my tree. Fill up a 1 gallon jar. Squish them a little with a potato ricer. Add some water to fill in the gaps. Add a little splash of store bought microbes (right now I am using supermicrobe root enhancer) cover the jar with a paper towel. Then I let them sit for a 4-7 days. Then I strain the liquid into these smaller jars and seal them.

I have read on the stuff ....a lot. Most of what I have read said it does kill many strains of benificial bacteria but that the omega 3s and fatty acids in it help feed other strains. So due to that I just wont use it.

I do understand why some people do... for the very reason you are saying, however I added benificial nematodes to my soil long before I transplanted to kill off any unwanted soil dwelling pests or larva. This way I'm achieving the same goal without in any way harming any benificials.
