    Glad you found it useful, a lot of people have contributed a lot of good information to this thread. SIPs definitely have solid advantages, it's just finding the right fit for the situation at hand. I look forward to hearing how your grow goes :)

    Is anyone doing a sip no till style. How are you guys re-amending?

    My outdoor SIPs are no till. I don't do shit to them over the winter. I leave the root balls in them all winter and don't even bother covering them. In the spring I amend with some lime and a little bit of worm castings. I might scrape out a little bit of the old roots before planting. Then it's just organic slow release dry ferts. This year I'm going to try a top dress with worm castings, Bu's Biodynamic and bokashi. I'll probably add some azomite as well. I use my soil for about three years and then add it to my yard landscaping.

    Cool so just a top dress and then a layer of EWC.

    do you have earthworms in it? Also do you mulch or use the plastic?

    I love the cover crop, @Jp.the.pope -- the only thing I've used (mostly outdoors) is red clover, what else are you using? (sorry if you've 'covered' that already... my memory is weak and my laziness is strong...)

    I bought a micro clover mix from build a soil. It has like 12 different kinds of seed. All help fix different nutrients.

    I'll see if I can find a link. On a side note, all my plants are loving it. Sip and no sip.
