sorry about the above . i deleted a few pics from my albums and they disappear here as well ..
anyway , ..my ground here , can't call it soil as its not , is very deep beach sand , an old sand dune !
its gutless ! if i don't water twice a day in summer then it dries completely to a depth of 5-6 inches .. also its extremely hydrophobic ..so every 2 or 3 years i clay it and it sort of makes it soil !
10 years i've gardened this patch and trailer load after trailer load i've put into this ..kelp , cow manure , sheep manure , chook shit , pea hay , etc etc etc ..tonnes of it ! top pic is showing my compost piles which i now do in situ .
but i do ok ..i grow more than enough for ourselves , plus half the town , plus my large worm farm .. oh for some deep fertile loam !
