Thats interesting - seriously?? In Upstate NY here - in the low 40s day time and high 20s at night nobody planting anything but peas and beans here. We maybe a tad farther north than Detroit.Getting close to the time when it will be safe to start planting outside in the lower part of Michigan.
Around here, southern part Macomb County, in SE Michigan it is getting close. I am moving my geraniums and culinary herbs outside and only bringing them in when the temps are dropping below 32, like last night. This weekend will start a cold spell with daytime in the 40s and nights in the mid 30s with one night at 32 (in the current 10 day forecast). They have spent the winter in the back room which is unheated and only gets sunlight through the one door wall. They have broken dormancy so those plants have started new growth and are using more water. Between 2 and 4 weeks and we should be safely past the last frost date so tender plants can go outside. So, yep, it is getting closeThats interesting - seriously?? In Upstate NY here - in the low 40s day time and high 20s at night nobody planting anything but peas and beans here.

If the OP is working outside I'd just dig a hole and mix those bales up with some compost and EWC and fill the holes and plant the plants. Likely the soil around the holes will have enough minerals for a tree or three. The peat moss will give the plants roots some better aeration and lower the pH temporarily while the plants grow big af. Dont forget the mycos.
Fancy Peat Moss, for sure. If you are as tight for money as I am there are a couple of ideas. At the going price for the bales of Sunshine Mix #4 you could consider trading them with another grower for something else you could use. Or, or selling them to somebody who wants them and buying plain ol' Peat Moss and have some change left over.I'm extending my grow. Usually start with FFOF and use Dr Earth grow and Dr Earth bloom. Add admendments in fall for the next year. Have no idea what is in the nutrition packs. Most likely will use the sunshine mix and add compost because it looks to me like fancy Coco coir.
