More winter chore catch-up

I know, I know, soil sifting and mixing is a winter task. But with moving into and renovating the studio, it just didn't happen this winter. 

I remembered to snap a couple of pictures as I worked.

Sifted akadama on the left, pumice on the right. These are 2-3 mm sized particles used for our main soil on medium to large size bonsai.
