Recipe Notes

This mix is about a 3:1:1 ratio and can be modified for any garden bed size.  Purple cow is an amazingly rich organic compost that can make the biggest difference in your garden.  It is expensive (~$15/bag).  Think of it like garden gold.  You can certainly use less (1 bag per 4’x3’x1′ garden) and simply add more of the other two.  HSU Garden Blend is a dense soil that helps to create the perfect texture when mixed with the Professional growing mix.  It does a nice job weighting down the soil just enough so that the wind doesn’t blow it away.
