If you’re facing growing problems, the first place to turn is your soil. A number of soil problems can throw your garden off balance, but there’s no shortage of amendments to set things right.
While I’m waiting for the soil to dry out so I can prepare the beds for spring planting, I spend time in the garden building a new terrace on the lower part of the cliff.
Before you purchase a property, be sure you know what’s in the soil. Everything from roadside pollution to illegal-drug contamination can affect your farm’s usability.
