Soils and amendments

I attended interesting classes today on soil and organic inputs to the garden.

The soil class included a chance to do a "shake test" of our soil structure.
I need to wait 24 hours for most of the clay to settle out before I will have the results
but it looks like our soil is a pretty nice loam -- yeah!

Soil ecology is fascinating to me. I hope to dig deeper into it, so to speak, in the weeks ahead.

The second session was taught by Naomi of Naomi's Organic Farm Supply.
It was an engaging looks at the various sources available for N-P-K and trace minerals.
