Merry meet all,
Are you having trouble with growing root veggies? You are not the only one. However I have some helpful tips for you. The trick to growing anything successfully is Phosphorus!!! It is what feeds plants and most helps them to grow.
It could be you need to clear roots, rocks and weeds out of your garden area. Try to do that before planting anything and being disappointed. Soil should be crumbly and loose- and full of earthworms. The next step is to amend the soil. Lime sweetens the soil but bear in mind that tomatoes and a few other plants need acidic soil. Phosphorus encourages flower bloom and root growth. Add bone meal and seaweed to the soil. Work it into the soil with a spade or tiller. Water the soil thoroughly afterwards. Then wait and watch your garden improve. Seaweed is extremely beneficial to soil.
This fall, I’m adding more spring bulbs and elephant garlic to my garden. I just successfully transplanted comfrey to keep the large weeds at bay. Comfrey stands its ground in the garden. Bees love comfrey. A win win all around. The next task is to figure out how to grow my tomato plants indoors and keep them from my cat. I’ll let you know how that goes.
Blessed Be, Lady Spiderwitch )O(
