Spring has Arrived - March 13, 2011

I pulled out most of the overwinter compost crop from section 2 and put it in the composter.  The soil underneath appeared to be darker and richer.  The mix of plants is supposed to increase the nitrogen in the soil, which will be needed as the tomatoes were in Section 2 last summer.
I started some seeds today, lettuce and spinach.
I also tested the soil from Section 2.  PH is 6.5, Nitrogen in Med, Phosphorus is high and Potasium is medium.  This is improved from last spring, all were low.
