Custom Perlite Blend
Normally, summer is when things drop off at Dirt Hugger. Spring gardens are planted and summer fruit is being picked. This year has been oddly different and we are finding ourselves making custom blends lately. We are now stocking Perlite have created custom blends with other amendments such as blood meal, feather meal, kelp, oyster shells and even biochar… We enjoy making new products and trying out different amendments. Thanks for your support!
We are excited to share with you a new video of our site and construction to date. This will give you the best feel of what’s been going on the past few months. Thanks to Ross Steffey, the amazing man behind the film.
We’ve also had our fair share of mishaps this spring – we snapped the conveyor off of our screener, vandals cut all of the wiring out of two pieces of our equipment, we blew up one truck engine and two truck transmissions. Our very own Taylor “the crescent wrench” Alsheimer rallied to the cause though and got everything back up and running. We have been impressed.
This spring has been crazy. Compost has been flying off the shelves and we have been struggling to keep up. Thank you to everyone who has waited patiently for product or delivery. Here’s some photos of what’s been happening lately.
We hosted the Biocycle West Coast conference tour.
