Best Nutrients from local stores like Lowes/Home Depot

Of course this is all hypothetical! As i only want fat tomatos but i fear being harassed for buying items that can be used for other purposes.

I want to do a test grow because grow shoppes are pissing me off with their prices. $20 for a small bag of soil! Please! $75-100 in nutrients! I know a bit about plants, and I feel burned when I leave. There are many products out there that aren't produced by Scott's/Monsanto. I just want to find great products at a fair price. I know they're out there.
Ps. I'm not discounting how great FF products are. I just think the prices are getting out of hand.

Any of the brand name fertilizers will work fine. I have used MG tomatos formula, Peter's, and Ortho nutes in the past, all with good results. As long as they are given in proper doses, any will do the trick.

1 2cu ft bag black gold organic potting soil
1 1cu ft bag black gold organic compost mix
1 1cu ft bag Chicken/Steer Manure
4 quarts perlite
1 cup blood meal
1 cup bone meal
1 cup alfalfa meal
1 cup kelp meal
1 cup bat guano
2T dolomite lime
2T garden sulfur
4T Epsom salt
I have found the Espoma brand has alot of good organic supplies like the lime, sulfur etc. I have seen on the products page of their website they also sell greensand and rock phosphate so Im going to keep an eye out for them over the summer.
