    What methods have you tried to improve your soil this season?

  2. Robin Says:

    So, Can I add those broken down charcoal (cubes) (bricks) to amend some soil here? They were accidentally left out all winter and Rainy Spring. They have broken down into a Power and small wood-chip stage. They Don't contain any flammable liquid or wax.

  3. Damon Says:

    As long as It’s just naturally made charcoal without the petro-chemicals, yes, you can use it. It will enhance your soil. It’s much like the ancient Slash and Burn agricultural technique used to make growing fields in the ancient world.

    From what I've heard, it's pronounced "prin-CEE-PEE" "bor-GAY-see" 😉 (CAPS indicate the emphasized part of the word)

  5. Damon Says:

    Ahh, thanks! I still have a few of those seeds left. I’ll probably plant those as well as a breed of tomato produced by the University of Florida called Neptune for growing in hot, humid climates. Have you tried Neptune tomatoes before?
