Re: Re: soil test results

Hi Donna and Pam,
You're right, it does make you stop and think about the wonder of it all.
The process isn't real fast, I've been at it here for about 13 years, the
last 7 or 8 with a vengence.
Mostly the process gets to be second nature, mulch, till, don't walk on it,
add the trace nutrients, don't use a lot of chemicals, keep putting compost
into your dirt, and pretty soon (a couple of years) you'll have soil you can
dig without a back hoe.
