Would someone please point me to this substrate recipe, or post same? I can
find a Jim Kelly article about tests using a combination of Yolo river loam
and vermiculite but not any mention of mashing or a full list of
ingredients and ratios.

Yesterday, I checked out some possible materials, including "sandy loam"
and washed river sand and am wondering if they'd fill the bill. The river
sand is a pretty ugly grey and I'm wondering if there's something lighter
and yellower I could use.
