If you’re hoping to grow high quality plants, you must first dig deep (no pun intended) into your soil. Much like the foundation of a house, your soil sets the tone for everything that follows. In today’s episode, I’m going to cover a variety of tips and tricks to help you strike the perfect balance in your soil that will allow your crops to flourish. Learn about the three primary components of soil, how to determine if you have clay in your soil, and why organic matter is your best friend. Discover how cover crops can be used to mend your soil and how I’m using them in my own garden this year. No matter where you are in your gardening journey, you are sure to find some information you can put to use immediately.
