Soil sustains life by helping plants to grow. Without it, there would be nowhere to grow food that is the sustenance of life. Healthy soil, like people, should have a balanced combination of elements and microorganisms. Each of these plays an important role in the various processes of your plant. The best way to have good soil is to develop and enrich it using various components and the video discusses these components in detail.
Keep in mind that soil is a living ecosystem composed of weathered rock, water, air and small organisms. However, organic matter is considered to be the most important element that soil should have. Organic matter can be almost anything containing biomass – such as lawn clippings, leaves, stems, branches, moss, algae, lichens, manure, kitchen scraps, sawdust, insects, earthworms and microbes. Organic matter is also the key to good water retention and it absorbs and stores nutrients. You can increase the amount of organic matter in your soil by adding compost, aged animal manures, green manures, mulches or peat moss.
Avoid using chemicals that create an imbalance in the soil. These chemicals may kill off unwanted pests, but in the long run, they may ultimately destroy living organisms that are essential to the creation of healthy soil. Applying killing agents to a living system is not a way to bring it back into balance, it is a way to wreak further havoc. It’s a terrible tragedy that this simple but very accurate soil science has been largely forgotten in the age of “agribusiness”.
Try to minimize stepping where you plan to plant to avoid pressing the soil. Make pathways in your garden to walk on and make planting beds narrow enough that you can reach across them from either side when it comes time to harvest.
Lastly, avoid working in your garden when the ground is too wet because this can destroy the soil’s structure. Mold a handful of soil into a ball with your fist and flick it with your fingers. If the ball falls apart, it’s good to go but if it doesn’t, then it’s still too wet.
