I hear you buddy !! And I'm talking way worse !! Just getting started is got to be expensive, but very cheap, for vegetables, that are high brix and yummy and better for our health. I've started reading the article about S. Korea natural farming !! not that I'll ever get it done, but I want to know how !!It will all depend on what amendments are needed. I have around 3 hundred into soil, then if you want to go all out you will need larger amounts of foliars and drenches. I have spent that on way worse shit in my life.
