Homemade potting up mixture

Potting up

What better gardening activity is there for a rainy day than potting up? I guess most people don't actually do the work in the rain....

Mixing potting soil

Even though I've changed my loyalties from stump dirt to storebought potting soil for the starting stage, I'm still content with homegrown options for potting up. Half stump dirt and half well-aged horse manure gives hungry plants plenty of nutrients while waiting for frost danger to pass. And, at this age, there's no worry left about damping off.
