Starting fall garden
If you have already been growing plants in your garden, then you are lucky as a garden that has already been prepped well for spring, as well as summer crops, will need little fall gardening planning. With little maintenance, you will be ready to plant fall crops and it will take no time at all.
Moving into fall
It is vital that your plants have access to all nutrients they will need. The appropriate nutrients make sure that your plants mature at the correct time. Before deciding to plant your crops, ensure that the soil you are putting them in is full of nutrients. Soil needs to be well-suited. There are several things you can do to ensure this:
- Check the pH levels of the soil
- Check nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus levels in the soil
- Re-mineralize the soil
- Finally plant the seeds, deeply watering the soil
pH levels of soil
You might be wondering why the pH levels in your soil are so important. The answer to that question is that the levels need to be suitable for the plant you have decided to plant. When it is not suitable, you can use fast-acting lime to raise the pH levels of sulfur to help lower the level.
Nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus
Measuring these elements can be done with a home soil test kit. If needed, you can use organic fertilizer to enrich the soil. These include:
- Bone meal
- Worm castings
- Rock phosphate
- Chicken manure
Re-mineralize – plant, and water
Prior to planting crops, you need to dust the garden bed with basalt or granite – this will re-mineralize the soil. And finally, before planting any seeds, deeply water the soil. This will all combine and activate the additions you have made to the soil.
