Six Ways to Show Your Soil Some Love!
Flourishing plants, bountiful gardens, and healthy food — they all start with healthy soil. No matter what kind of soil you have now, these techniques will build its capacity to hold water, air, and nutrients — all vital for strong roots and vigorous plants.
1. Add Compost
1. Add compost when you plant, and throughout the growing season. Beneficial soil organisms consume organic matter, so keep it coming!
2. Protect with mulch
2. Apply mulch around plants. It helps conserve soil moisture, keeps soil cool, and prevents soil compaction from heavy rain.
3. Plant in raised beds
3. Plant in raised beds, sized so you can tend plants without stepping in beds.
4 go no-till
4. Till only as needed — if at all — to avoid damaging soil life.
Feed the soil
5. Use a slow-release organic fertilizer when needed.
6. Control pests naturally
6. Manage pests with row covers and hand-picking. Use least-toxic, organic pesticides only as a last resort.
