E..ovi organic xn&tUr ia sX i an
' import; -1 part of gardening. To keep
the orranic matter- of 'file soil at a
faisrh level ia one of (the- main reasons
farmers rotate their crops. , . ,
Although adding organic matter to
, soil is no cure-all, it does open up
heavy soils and increases me water
holding capacity, of sandy soil. It
also, contains a small amount of plant
food and helps release plant nutrients
into available forms. - .
Small gardeners cannot practice
crop rotation. Usually they do not
" have access to the anam source of or-
, game matter" on farms themanure
' pile. However, it is fairly easy to
keep soil in good condition with a
couple of compost heaps. -Composting
materials may be kept
in a pile in an out-of-the-way corner
,-. of the garden, into them place all
kinds of grass clippings, , leaves and
weeds that have not formed seeds.
This material should be placed in lay
ers about six inches thick and cover
d with a thin layer of .top soil. It is
a good idea to sprinkle each layer of
r plant material with complete plant
food. . -y-i, - -
- Alternate layers of vegetable mater
ial and soil can be built up to a height
of three to four feet. Each layer
should be soaked with water and the
top of the heap should be divided to
catch the rain. "'. .
