Walden Effect Garden

The garden is at the heart of our homestead. We use permaculture techniques to grow nearly all of the vegetables we eat and are building up our fruit production. Our goal is to eventually grow nearly everything we eat in a method that is beyond organic...healing the old farm we live on.

I am new to your blog thing (I can't even tell you how I stumbled across it!) and I have to tell you that it's wonderful! I haven't gotten far enough to find out where you are for sure, but someday I'll get there. It's so interesting to hear about all those things that I sometimes see and sometimes miss. I do have a one year old son, you know! Anyhow, thanks and I hope that I can get signed up for getting this sent to my email.

What to do to sandy soil?

I am just starting to garden in a new area and the soil is drying out way to fast, 12 hours. I have killed more than 1/2 of what I have planted. Some things are doing good in this but others just die, some in less than a day. I do have a compost pile and it is cooking down but is'nt ready yet, is there something else cheep (we live on a fixed income) I can do to help hold the moistor in the soil? I am in zone 8b in southern alabama, it is in the high 80s low 90s daily now.

I hope I can find my way back to get your responce,

This is such a good question, I'm going to turn it into a post. Stay tuned for tomorrow morning's answer!

To use sandy soil, you need large amounts of organic matter. .. you'll need to provide about 1000 lbs/acre PER YEAR in your climate

Partially cooked compost is great (ideal in fact) as the extra carbon will serve to keep it in the soil for longer, without tying up too many nutrients. People in your area have had good luck with using Vetvier Grass cover crop for a year or two.

Also wood chips (from saw mills) and leaves are great additions.

If you have any Kudzu infestations these would be great to add to the soil...

I think mulch will keep the soil wet for longer, but you may run into insect problems with that.

I totally agree --- organic matter is the way to go with sandy soil. Not that I know from personal experience --- our waterlogged clay is about as far from sandy soil as you can get. :-)
