I’ve been watching and reading about soil health and will put the information I find on this page.
Here are some of the things I’m going to try.
- No fertilizer in the garden beds – instead add compost to the top. Let the earthworms bring down the compost to the lower levels of the soil.
- No fertilizer on lawns – try and find someone who will spread fine compost onto the soil.
- Rotate plants – move plants around to different areas
- Cover crops? I am trying this for one area in Spring 2015.
- Gabe Brown’s program
