I've used dirt from my yard (Toxic Ten) I've owned my home for 27 years and never use any commercial frets or any type of weed killers. I garden organically.

Most of the time I use the $1.17 40# bag of Top Soil from HomeDepot. Unless it's on sale for .97 Between friends I've made it for and my own tanks I've done 15_ tanks using HD top soil.
