We will see :) waiting for some rains

Basically cleaned out planter,bleached, watered, a little dusting of lime, then pasteurized coir and made the 50/50++ PC sub in oven bag, basically followed MZs 'bulk model' ? (Correct me if I'm wrong I have too many different things going)

Then taking a turn from that tek, 8 extra 100%+ brf pints of PE..Crumbled down in separate oven bag, mixed into sub bag and filled in good sized area of planter, gave it a little extra puff of lime, foiled it, covered the planter with plexiglass and a towel for 2 weeks........then used a pc'd 5050+ casing less than half inch and watered it with mist setting for a couple minutes. Been about 2 weeks since so I am expecting something but also not expecting anything on a timeframe

*another similar project with 6-7 tammd cakes in the adjacent planter(B)..same plan and tekking as planter A

*Started about 2 weeks after, will soon remove the cover and case if it looks well enough (used bleach spray precautions with planter prep as well as with tammed cake sub but pasteurized the second one)

pics will be shared soon but like I said I think the highs are too much til steady rain comes.

****If anyone has friendly advice in the event these get all nasty... My simple thoughts would probably have me dumping bleach and mixing it in.. maybe some iso91% on top;) 🍧

I am not sure if bleach breaks down. It may leave the planter useless for anything. I am planning an outdoor bed of cyan and took a page from the farmers. Part of my prep is to pour ammonia in the bed. The bacteria in the soil break down the ammonia releaseing nitrates and nitrates providing a nitrogen rich soil. Since I am working with a wood lover, I will be mixing in chips and dust to raise the lignin content as well. The keep it covered for a couple weeks to prevent weeds while the bacteria do their thing. Ground temp will determine when I get to mix in  more chip and the spawn since summer is almost here. Cover with a thin layer of chips. From there  mother nature will make all the decisions. 

Good luck and keep us posted.

Thanks I will!

Ammonia sounds like a good choice, curious how that will work! 

I didn't mean to leave out a few things.. I get too detailed when I type, (one of the reasons I can't use social media, it would consume me lol) 

bleach:water (1:8) was sprayed around planter after cleaning old shit, then I forgot to mention adding 1-2" of dry verm and quite a bit of hydrated lime then carefully sprayed around the outside of the invisible ~14"×14" box I planned to use(only part of the planter)(also there's a hole at the bottom of one of the planters I filtered and filled with rocks so there is moderate air flow from the other side of the fence but sub is covered with tub on planter B and plexiglass/towel on planter A)(tried to think dub tub but where the planter IS the bottom tub)

good luck mag 🤙🏼 I will read up on some ammonia

Ammonia is used on fallow fields long before a new crop goes in. The bacteria have to have time to break down the ammonia otherwise it'll probably kill everything. The last time I used it for gardening, was on a straw bale garden. It was watered daily after the ammonia for about a month before planting.
