Now that the seasons crops are harvested, were turning out attention to supplementing the soil in our raised beds. I will be adding various soil amendments, such as kelp meal, azomite, a dash of elemental sulfur, some granular gypsum, maybe some alfalfa meal or chopped alfalfa hay. Im not going to get carried away, as I use a full nutrient program (fox farms) during the growing season, as well as mycorhyzal application.
What amendments do you add?
Also, I wonder if I cant screen the ashes from my wood stove, and save the chunks of charcoal and add them as well. Are these chunks of charcoal akin to bio-char, even though they are created by a different method? I understand that I ought not add wood ash, as it will raise the soil ph if applied in large amounts.
