Make your own potting mix!

I have terrible nutrient-poor clay soil here. I've been amending it for a couple of years now, but it's still pretty bad. I'm actually considering tearing it out of our raised beds and replacing it with new soil. I might try making up some of my own potting mix, following a recipe I found here:

 

To make your own mix, combine the following in a wheelbarrow:

 

2 five gallon buckets full of sphagnum peat moss
1 five gallon bucket full of rotted horse manure, compost, or worm castings
1 and 1/2 cup garden lime
1 large coffee can full of perlite
1 handful of Epsom salts

 

Here's a vid:
