Master Gardener Tips May 23, 2023


By Debbie Post, Nebraska Extension Master Gardener

Your garden soil might need some extra help this spring. If your dirt is hard and clumpy, it probably has an excess of clay and needs better drainage. If it is thin and crumbly, it could lack moisture and nutrients. Adding amendments like aged manure, compost, peat moss, even egg shells, and coffee grounds can help improve your soil quality for increased garden harvest. Get your hands dirty and get digging.
