Master Gardner class updates

Thursday was Veg. garden day.  Great information, and I think maybe I can raise better carrots now.  (sprinkle seed on wet ground, and cover with plywood… step on plywood to firm ground, wait few weeks and peak under plywood.. if you see little sprouts, then prop up plywood and let them start growing.)

Also all the information about the fertilizer… or should I say not so much fertilizers.  really led into the next class.   Pesticides and fertilizers.   We have really intresting soil around here.. so much iron in it that the soil is red… but it is not usable by most plants!  So we add cleated (sp?) iron to the soil.  Also the standard soil tests dont work well here.. pH issues etc.  So Fri I will be doing about 7 soil tests here (lots of different zones of planting) and submitting them all to the university for testing.  At least I will have some idea of what I am dealing with.

Well, hopefully I will have updates on the classes next week.
