What the Soil?
Soil is THE MOST important thing in any garden, and it is the most likely thing you will get wrong if you don’t have success.
SOIL MATTERS. In the vegetable gardens we do consultations on 9/10 times the issue is soil related: there is a good chance the problem you are having in your garden come back to the soil in one way or another.
Soil health is like gut health… the whole vegetable gardens well being depends on it. The plants get their nutrients from the soil, and you from the plants. So really the soil is the KEY to yours and your precious families health.
