My wife Rachel is quite pregnant at the moment, so I did a video vlog-style yesterday and took the camera out to my soil-improvement plots, which look suspiciously like deer food plots:
If you’re going to use chemical fertilizers, I recommend using them to build humus!
Our soil is getting richer through planting cover crops and tilling them under. When the ground needs compost, why not grow your own in place?
I will take a pepper for seed.
I was so excited to improve our soil. Tilled up an acre with our tractor, spread 850 pounds of lime, then planted 50# of crimson clover. It was coming up well, however after a few weeks most is gone. Looks like the flocks of wild turkeys loved it, footprints everywhere. Sad!
Turkeys can be really destructive. I’m sorry.
