Soil Amendments

Q. I live in Sierra Madre and want to garden a hillside. My soil
is
poor so I have mulched with horse manure from a stable. Will I also
have
to put in ammendments to grow tomatoes and peppers? Ashe

A. You have made a good start to your
garden! In addition to the horse manure, we’d recommend mulching with
oak leaves or applying organic material to amend the soil, such as an
organic compost mixture (we use Dr. Earth, which can be purchased from a
nursery supply store), composted kitchen waste, or composted garden/lawn
waste.
