I figured organic is organic and it must be good. But after being told otherwise, this year I have found a new soil called Pro-Mix, which is OMRI listed, Organic, and has Mycorrhizae (beneficial fungi). It runs about $7 for 1 cubic foot at the local home improvement store. This bag happens to be leftover from last years stock and has been outside all winter. I'm hoping it's none-the-worse for it. I don't know if the fungi are still in there and alright or if they would have died off in the cold. Maybe they just go dormant (I hope). I'm hoping they have fresh stuff in soon so I only have my initial containers in the overwintered soil.
In the meantime, I'm contemplating what varieties I'll be growing this year. My seed stash is becoming quite a collection now and with so many choices, and such limitations this year, I'm finding it hard to pear it down. I'm still anticipating more seeds as I joined a group seed trade this month - a package of seeds (what kinds I have no idea) should be arriving next month. If it truly ends up being an even trade (you get as many as you send in), I should be getting 100 packets back (I may have gone a little overboard, but hopefully it's worth it).
