Barb’s Gardening Tips

Hello Gardeners,     

There are no two ways about it; come Autumn, your garden soil is tired and hungry!  Throughout Spring and Summer, your garden has been depleted of nutrients while feeding fruits and vegetables – all the while, being pounded by rain, wind, and the baking sun.  The soil now needs fed, so it will be ready to come to life again next Spring.  There are several ways to add natural, organic, and long-lasting nutrition to your garden.  Fallen leaves are one of the easiest and least expensive ways to provide your garden with nutrition and organic matter in the Fall.  Take fallen leaves, shred them up with a lawn mower, and spread a two inch layer over the soil.  You can either dig it in with a pitch fork or a rototiller.  If you are not blessed with trees on your property – take a drive around your neighborhood.  Many times the hard work is done with the leaves raked to the curb or even already  bagged up.  A simple request will often yield all the leaves you can handle.  Maple, Birch, Ash, and Beech leaves make excellent additions to garden soil, while acidic Oak leaves often do more harm than good.   

Happy Gardening,  

Barb
