Back to Eden
Many of you have asked the forum over and over again how to improve the soils (depleted sugar sands) in Florida after moving from areas of the country that was not so hostile to growing plants whether floral or vegetable. I have often stressed the point of using wood chips as a thick covering to your soil to aid in retaining moisture, adding missing minerals as it breaks down, and tempering the suns heat at the plants roots. I have found a video online (Back to Eden) that shows this principle in depth. With my many visits to bamboo_rabbits home I noticed he was using this same way of improving his soil and how his veggies grew beautifully in comparison to mine. I have slowly been improving my garden soil with wood chips but not fully understanding the whole scope of the soil preparation in layers. This recently released video has been showing me the in depth steps I have to take to improve the soil here on my little farm.
