Welcome to our June 2017 SoilMatrix Newsletter – “Dr. David Montgomery’s Videos and Books”
It’s amazing how the summer months fly by! This SoilMatrix Newsletter will be very short, I promise.
Here is what the SoilMatrix Garden looked like on June 29, 2017.
As you can see, we have a relatively good start with the romaine lettuce, kale, swiss chard, green and yellow beans, and peas. The potatoes are developing very nicely in the back and the zucchini is doing well next to the romaine. All in all we are quite happy with this year’s experimental use of compost only for nutrients. This garden is receiving no chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides and as little city of Calgary water as possible. We are attempting to bring the soil health up to a level where all of these services are happening below ground level via our soil life food web friends.
