Thanks for the warning. I will go slow and build the soil year by year.
You said: It totally changes the way one can raise the crops one wants to raise, but one can raise very tasty crops, if one understands the actions taking place and is able to help match the adjustment up in the soil, and one of the most Important things is Mulching to help control the moisture and temperature !
Can you educate me on the actions taking place so that I match the adjustments in the soil? There is a proverb: Give me a fish and I eat for a day, teach me to fish and I eat for a lifetime.
I am planning to mulch with my yard clippings and will scavenge the neighborhood in the fall for leaves. I have also applied lots of 4 year old compost(leaves and eggshells) from a friend leaving town.
