If a soil test concludes you need to add lime and you were planning on fertilizing with ringers at the beginning of september, when is the best time to put down the lime?  Can they be put down at the same time?  Is it best to wait a certain time before putting the other down and if so, which should be put down first?

One option would be to use less Ringers, and mix your lime with seedmeal (intended as animal feed) and maybe bloodmeal. I've read that the mix of powders is easier to spread evenly than pure lime, which helps avoid burning some spots.

Also, my understanding is that you want them to all go down at approximately the same time, since they work together to support soil life. The worms can have their steak, then their Tums, then some more steak...
