It’s All About the SOIL

Good soil is a combination of dirt (clay, loam, sand), organic material  (compost, manure), air spaces, water pores and lots + lots + lots of  organisms (did I mention lots?).  These organisms are the real unsung  heroes of our time, doing the job of feeding our plants, and in turn  feeding us.  These are the bacterium, fungi, worms, nematodes, protozoa,  algae… on and on, that consume the organic material (even each other)  then excrete out the stuff of dreams (okay, maybe only of my dreams)…  Fertilizer!  All natural, organic and uncensored, this is the  stuff that makes plants zoom!  Delicious Tomatomania tomatoes, sweet  carrots, perfect Zinnias; these are all byproducts of a healthy soil  food ecosystem.
