    What is this?

    I made another thread in the General area. Thought I’d ask here also.Bringing in my outdoor sips for the year thought I’d amend them. Looking at the soil I’m finding these salt looking clumps located exactly where I did my Gaia top dressing. See photos. What am I looking at? Used up Gaia?

    Not sure what this is.

    Potato towers

    Anyone try this? Seen lots of videos seems to work. Wrap a cage in a circle layer of straw then dirt. Seeds more dirt repeat. Like growing in a large pail with holes in the sides for the plant to grow out of.
