One day late…some musings about soil at spanishwoods.
I’ll take it, I’ll take it! 😉 Going to your site now to see whatcha did–thanks so much!!!
It was a wonderful and great cause my friend. Close to our little piggy hearts here at the Hotel Thompson. XOXO – Bacon
Hearts & soles, as it were… 😉 Thx, my blog buddy!!!
Oh I just did an update on my worm buckets, one year on.
I have been thrilled with how easy they are and how well they work., sorry I didnt get it in in time to make your list.
Hi there! Sorry I had to take a day off yesterday to deal with stuff around the house!!! I will add your post now. Thanks so much for participating! Where are you in Australia?
Hmmm, save the soil, year of the soil….all that means to me is the price of dirt, here in the USA, will go up, up, up…even with composting, and with 3 acres there is alot of composting happening, I am buying soil. Now, I have the “delightful” prospect of paying much, much more for something I need. and that makes the price of my hobby and the food I produce higher…maybe it’s time to throw in the towel on the veggie garden and start shopping the wholesalers and roadside stands.
Three acres is quite a spread! I hope that you can find a way to restore your soil without replacing too much with store-bought. I know all too well how expensive that can be, even for just a raised bed! Will be running stories all year long with some more ideas about soil amendments and other ideas. Hope that you can find a way to keep growing your own but, believe me, I couldn’t live off what I grow either. Getting good food on the table is generally a mixed bag of resources for us. Thanks for adding to the conversation & wishing you best of luck!!!
Oh, Lori–my apologies! I have been so neglectful of my blog and blog-reading lately (I won’t bore you with my writerly excuses), I only saw your invite to submit to this today! Such an important topic, and I truly enjoyed everybody’s thoughts 🙂
No prob, Cherie! We will invite you again next time!!! 😀
Soil is awesome! Where would we be without it?
Good point! 🙂
