Description

Grow twice the fruits and vegetables in half the space on the farm, in the backyard, or in your window! The Ultimate Guide to Soil begins with a personality test for your soil, then uses that information to plan a course of action for revitalizing poor soil and turning good dirt into great earth. Next, you'll learn to start and maintain a no-till garden, to balance nutrients with remineralization, and to boost organic matter with easy cover crops. Don't forget the encyclopedic overview of organic soil amendments at the end. Old standbys like manures and mulches are explained in depth along with less common additions such as bokashi compost and castings from worms and black soldier fly larvae. Learn when hugelkultur, biochar, paper, and cardboard do and don't match your garden needs, then read about when and how to safely use urine and humanure around edible plantings.
