My Great Soil Experiment

[one_half_last]Soil test 2[/one_half_last]

I have completed my free Soil Composition Test.  I took a sample from the clay soil of my front garden today, where the roses and the lavender grow and also from the veggie patch which I have been rejuvenating with compost, etc., every season. They both look so very similar. Let’s see what happens once they settle. This should be interesting! I am looking forward to all the results!!

The soil in Philadelphia – up the West Coast of Cape Town,  seems to be one of clay. It is where wheat, oats and canola is grown, and a new crop that the farmers grow for a summer harvest is grapes. Our village is surrounded by these fields.
