Mixing our Mittleider Pre-Plant Fertilizer

Now that our seedling flat medium is mixed we need to mix up our pre-plant fertilizer that will be added to our growing medium.  According to the Mittleider Gardening Course book on page 51, we are going to mix 5 pounds lime of gypsum, 1 ounce of boron from 20 Mule Team Borax, and 4 ounces of magnesium sulfate.  (we get more than 20 inches of rain here in Missouri annually so we use lime.  18 or fewer inches you want gypsum)
