The Clackamas Coot Mix
Here is the recipe for my personal potting soil mix and this will make 1 cubic foot (which is just a little over 7 gallons).
You'll need a 5-gallon bucket, like the ones you can get at Home Depot. We’ll use this to measure out our base ingredients, which isn’t a long list. This was created for new gardeners so there’s nothing o worry about - it’s easy!
You’ll notice that the soil has a very rich smell like the floor in a forest - humus!
This exact recipe has been used by hundreds and hundreds around the USA and it grows in popularity every year as friends tell friends about what it did for their gardens.
"This mix is perfect for starting seeds or for planting seedlings or transplants that you buy at shows." -Clackamas Coot
Fundamentally IPM is creating a complete management system for indoor/outdoor growing
UC Davis Defines IPM as:
“Integrated pest management (IPM) is an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests or their damage through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and use of resistant varieties. Pesticides are used only after monitoring indicates they are needed according to established guidelines, and treatments are made with the goal o removing only the target organism. Pest control materials are selected and applied in a manner that minimizes risks to human health, beneficial organisms, and the environment.”
