 Hi Mike,

I think you said the magic word when you said "lots of compost at 
planting time".  What kind do you use and what about the fear of rot 
with the compost?  My soil is very sandy and it just don't seem to 
have any "umph".  It's called river bottom top soil but it just don't 
hold any water at all and has no growing power.  Any info is greatly
