For the mortar box challenged, can you estimate the weight of peat you
mix with a cup of powdered lime? I tried making up such a mix myself
when I ran short of some magic worm bedding Charles gave me, and my
white worms were not happy with the result!
Even though I'm trying to get synthetic scrubber cultures up & running,
I'd like to keep my dirt culture backup.
