Ah, spring is coming soon! Now is the time to test your soil, get your garden beds ready for planting, and plan your spring garden.

Spring Soil Preparation and Soil Testing

You can take a soil sample to your local county co-op extension office to have it tested or buy a do it yourself kit at any big box store or local nursery.

If you don’t want to go to the trouble of testing, a sure way to enrich your soil is to use a balanced organic fertilizer and compost.  I add organic material every spring, building the soil’s fertility and ability to hold water.

A local CSA and organic gardener told me a couple of years ago that it is important to not let your fertilizer just lay on top of the ground as many of the nutrients will be lost. 



This spring, we will put down an organic fertilizer Re-Vita Pro 5-4-4, a layer of mushroom compost and top with mulch.
