Thumbs up Homemade mix (sorta)

I mixed up about 15 gallons of soil today, using a huge bag of "organic soil" I found on sale at HD for 7 bucks, some Stall Dry, charcoaly ashes from the fire mound, a little sawdust and a small amount of yard clay.

It drains well; is light and airy, yet it also has the carbon and future compost. I put my fern roots and windmill palms in it. If it works well, I'll use this formula when I plant my basjoos in April.
