I am once again going to try to post each day this month. The NaBloPoMo theme this month is roots.
When I moved into my current house I really didn't have soil, but sand. I have learned in the last sixteen years that sand is fairly easy to amend. It just takes lots of amendments and time. We have added manure, green sand, blood meal, bone meal, leaves,compost, compost tea, and various other amendments to get our plants to grow bigger and better.
This spring we can really see the results of all our playing in the dirt. Plants are growing healthier, bigger, and the stems are stronger. Amending the soil continues like teaching and learning. You are never done.
