Last week we learned about soil amendment. We talked compost and manure, and that the BEST thing for you soil is composted manure! Mixing organic manures into your compost, and letting the heat kill off bad bacteria and add to the NPK is best for your soil. We added different amendments to our soil and the kids all got a bit dirty mixing, spreading and adding. We also planted our fall plants-broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, and a ton of marigolds and mums for companion planting(a natural way to prevent pests).
