Amending the Soil
This week we finished cutting in the rows of our garden. We ended up with 9 rows x 25'. I amended the soil with composted manure and straw. Our soil is a little low on potash, but otherwise very rich in nutrients. We burned wood in the garden last fall to bring the potash level up with charcoal. We'll keep burning fires in the off season. We also have Fertrell 1, liquid "Plant Food from the Sea", 4-1-1. Maybe I should soak our plants with it when we transplant, but we've had such great success in this garden the last couple of years. I'm not sure I need to. My dad's voice keeps filling my head, "If it ain't broke Jody don't try'n fix it". What to do, bother, what to do?
