What season is it? What day is it? For some reason, I hear that a lot these days. To answer the question- today it is the Fall! My time to roll in the leaves, enjoy the cooler nights and the smell of the harvest….All the things us doggies love, besides digging. After all our hot and smokey summer days, digging would actually do me and your garden good. Some garden TLC is in order.
By TLC, we mean adding nutrients back in that have been depleted.
First and foremost, Dig, dig in deep, and dig some more. To really be efficient till your soil down 8 to 12 inches (wow that’s great). But even 4 to 6 inches can be an improvement for the soil. Then you are ready to start the soil amending process.
Second, amending (that’s a big word) of the soil. A great add in is Nufiber compost – coming straight from the central valley. If you soil does not need this rich of a blend- try our Growers Blend or Planters Mix. After the amending (adding in) is complete, leave the soil alone for a day or two so. The organic materials (soil enhancements) will have time to decompose and provide nutrients into the soil. Yummy for your soil!
Your amended soil with bless you tremendously. You have now created an opportunity for moisture retention. Your garden will yield a large, healthy and nutritious crop; your flowers will shine and your trees will thrive.
Last, but not least, check your watering. Repair any damaged lines, or reroute as needed. Look at your watering times. Our daylight is changing.
Take time to smell the flowers and as always – Happy Digging!
