'Cultivated' vegetables on average are heavy feeders with nutrient and water
Light mulch and drip irrigate
Most common vegetables need an equivalent of 25ml worth of rain per week
Cleaner the water source the better, rain water is perfect! Rain water after a thunderstorm is better
Vegetables require on average 6-10 hours of sunlight per day
If planting in rows or blocks, orientate them north south to maximize sunlight on all sides of the plant.
Sunlight is integral for ripening of fruits and leaf production.
It is beneficial to plant in a tier'd fashion, with the tallest crops furthest away from north
Consider mitigation in extreme events
“Soil is the great connector of life, the source and destination of all.
It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.”
― Wendell Berry
ELEMENTS OF SOIL
RELATIONSHIPS & BALANCING
Start a Garden Diary
Start gathering research... the 'detail' on balancing soil.
Conduct your observations
Perform preliminary DIY soil tests.
Take soil sample & send to the lab eg; SWEP
Analyze and assess soil sample results
Accept feedback and refine research and investigation.
Prescribe quantities of required mineral/composts to begin balancing your soil eg; lime, compost, seaweed (do it slowly)
- or -
Alter soil properties eg; structure, biology,
Accept and review feedback, transcend and include.
Slow and small solutions
STEP BY STEP
GUIDE TO BALANCING
Look to create a system that works for you in
. That drives your "mechanisms of fertility"
"When a soil is very far away from offering plants an abundant and balanced supply of minerals, if key plant nutrients are nearly missing or way out of proportion then the food it produces cannot be nutrient dense. Period full stop."
