Amending the Soil

Add compost and manure

There's not much organic matter in my mountain soil. Every bit of organic matter is precious, and it's the focus of my soil amending. I compost all vegetable kitchen waste and leafy leftovers from the garden (except for diseased plants). I add well-rotted horse manure from a local stable to help the composting process. When I moved into my house ten years ago, there wasn't a shrub, tree, or cultivated plant on our one-acre site. Now it's an oasis for local birds and wildlife. In my previously wormless soil, there are now worms a-plenty! -Cynthia Davis, Flagstaff, AZ
