Make your own! See Eliot Coleman's U Tube soil block mixing recipe. I do something similar with leaf compost, horse maneur and wood shavings compost and perlite. Similar idea. Works good for me. Have not made it to soil blocks yet.

Subject: [Market-farming] McEnroe Farms Potting Soil

We are trying to decide which organic compost based potting soil to purchase this season to use for our vegetable starts.

We are considering McEnroe Farms from Millerton, NY.   (http://www.mcenroeorganicfarm.com/composting/growing)  Has anyone used their potting soils before?  I spoke with someone who did use them but it was a number of years ago and he recalls the farm having trouble with the blends but doesn’t remember the specific issue.  I would hope any issues back then would have been resolved by now.  Their prices are very reasonable for 1 and 2 ton sling bags.

There is always Vermont Compost but that will cost me at least a $1000 more for my needs.
