Eye-opening podcast on soil health

2 Comments

If you compost, garden, or are thinking about starting, this is an excellent listen! Soil doctor Doug Weatherbee gives an easy to understand introduction to the components of soil and how we can adjust some variables. Click for part 1 of soil health podcast , then follow the link on that page for part 2.

We’ve had heavy rain followed by light rain for a few days now.  The mulch that we laid down over the potatoes did its job just fine and protected the soil, whereas the rest of the exposed areas took a beating.  In retrospect, I should have saved some mulch to protect the spinach and carrot seeds.  I think they’ll be fine though.

I’m eagerly awaiting my first sprouts, and also the first fruiting of oyster mushrooms, which I’ve planted in a few media for testing! 🙂

  1. You rock! Love your blog. What a great opportunity to learn and grow, (in more ways than one).
    I look forward to seeing the progress. Cant wait to visit someday.

  2. Hope you and your family make it out among all your own life changes. We’d love to give your youngsters a crash course in immersion Japanese!! I know they could be really helpful in the garden. 😉
