Magic Mix is Overalls' proprietary, compost-based soil mix. Overalls uses Magic Mix to fill all our raised beds. After the first season, you can simply top-dress before planting with another few inches - enough to refill your beds. This is how we manage our soil fertility at Overalls Farm and how our customers grow bountiful gardens season after season.
1 yard is enough to fill a 4'x8'x10" raised bed. It's 27 cubic feet & approximately the same number bags of Magic Mix. If you need help calculating your Magic Mix needs, click here.
Riverside Community Garden says, "I don't think we understood what good soil meant…..until [growing in Magic Mix]. The rate of growth and the health of the plants has been noticed- I think every visitor asks where we got the soil! The tomatoes are 6+ feet tall and the cucumbers are so prolific we are giving them away!"
Overalls has supported hundreds of successful gardeners by leaning on their Magic Mix, which they have refined and continue to perfect. The magic recipe currently includes: local compost including crushed pine bark and small wood chips, composted manures, worm castings, + granite dust, Azomite®, & kelp for micro nutrients.
Another customer, Suzanne struggled to grow "normal-sized vegetables" for years until I filled her beds with Magic Mix. She said, "Your soil makes me feel like a master gardener."
