How Does Your Garden Grow?

Acid Soil:

Most Alabama soils require liming every 3 to 5 years to maintain the soil pH between 5.5 to 6.5. A detailed soil test by a reputable laboratory is the only way to determine the precise soil pH and lime requirement. Information on soil testing is available at the Alabama Cooperative Extension System.

Mulching:

Mulch helps control weeds in perennial and long-season crops such as asparagus, strawberries, tomatoes and peppers. Six to eight inches of pine straw, leaves and well-decomposed sawdust will help with weeds. Mulch also cuts down on evaporation of soil moisture.
