Growing Deeper Show Notes

3: All About Soil

Photos demonstrating how to test the pH of your soil with test strips and diagrams of the soil classification triangle, soil food web, and living root sugar/ protein contributions to the system.

We promised to help you “grow deeper” and this week we delivered! We talk all about soil; what it is, what it isn’t, what lives in it, why it’s so important, and what we can do to improve and protect it.

Find your earbuds and head to the garden for some hands-on exploration while you listen. We walk you through learning what kind of soil you have and what that means for your plant choices and your garden.
