"Brazilian. The fruit is subacid and of poor quality; it has little to recommend it as a dessert banana, and its acceptance in Hawaii seems to be a good example of the power of need and habit in influencing the demands of a market." - Norman Simmonds - Musa Hall of Fame

I live near the floodplain of The Great Miami River in southern Ohio.
The area is a very large floodplain rich with farms and the soil is to die for.
After reading the banter about Azomite brand clay I had to check it out.
I filled up a few buckets of the silt to incorporate into my nanners and other stuff.
I will use this as an amendment in some of my "soilless mixes"
This will only be a test and I realize that I am not using the real deal.

I hope to see a difference.
