5-25-08 Garden Notes
Well I tranplanted most of my stuff into the ground today. I found that I didn't seem to have enough room for it all.
I did my soil test yesterday and found the following on my soil:
When I trasplanted, I used all the soil in my pots to mix in with the ground soil. I am thinking that it might be a good idea to buy some food though.
We got a pretty good storm system that came through this morning, so I wasn't sure I was going to be able to do anything with my plants today. However it didn't seem that it rained too much. The soil was damp, but not wet.
Upon digging through my soil to loosen it up, I found that my first assumption of my ground soil was incorrect. It is not clay. It has a more airy quality to it, like loam, but not super airy. I also found a couple of seashells and fish scales while digging. I am wondering if this section of soil was used for plantings of some sort by prior owners of the house.
We will have to see how the plants do, now that they are in the ground.

Good luck with your plants, I hope they'll grow well for you!
Wewll, that soil report doesn't sound too bad, does it? You can raise the nitrogen levels by affing compost or blood meal...but if you do, be a little careful because not all veggies will appreciate too much nitrogen. Plants that need and like nitrogen are the 'green' plants like spinach, greens,lettuce, etc.
Best of luck to you. I hope you have many good eats.
