Three Year Soil

This is the former tomato bed. It is ready for this season's garlic. This soil has really improved and it is hard to imagine the sandy, weedy mess it was only three July back. Last winter I added fishbone meal, dolomitic lime, and biweekly burials of roughly 2 gallons of vegetable scraps, coffee grinds, egg shells, and what else. I stopped adding the scraps in this location around March something. I expect great garlic to grow here.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
