Helpful Publication on Soils

If you were unable to attend our soils presentation today, you missed a great program!  One of the bottom line points was that organic matter, most especially compost here in Central Texas, is the best possible amendment for our garden and vegetable beds.  So I wanted to share with you a good publication from Oregon State University Extension Service:


And I'll also share a tip with you that I shared in this morning's class:  anytime you are doing an internet search for gardening/horticulture information (and many other topics too), use the word "Extension" as part of your search ("Extension soil compaction," Extension roses," etc.).  That will ensure that most of the information that comes up is from a land-grant university, which means that the information will be based on research and written by degreed specialists in their field.

Happy gardening!
