I always try to explain to folks what it is that I do, especially when it comes to spraying.
I like to tell folks that all that I am doing is replenishing the soil with the living microbes that makes the soil and plants work together so well.
Because I am a genius, I am also providing these microbes with the minerals they eat. The way it is supposed to work is that the soil has its own microbes that eat minerals that is available to the plants through root hairs.
Put simply, the poop of the bacteria is the food of the plants.
