Based on soil test results the following was added to the 1000sq.ft. of growing space. Since lime was needed and peat moss was added (slightly acidic material) a combination of hydrated lime (shown in the image) and calcitic lime was added. The intention was to get some quick action (hydrated) in combination with season long pH adjustment with the calcitic.

Here is what was added per 1000sq.ft…
100 pounds of lime (50lbs hydrated + 50lbs calcitic)
33cubic yards of peat moss
5lbs of Mn sulfate
5lb of Cu sulfate
25lbs of 0-0-50
100lbs of alfalfa meal
80lbs of gypsum
10lbs of iron sulfate
