Oyster Shell Lime

Our pine forest soil is on the acid side so Peggy is adding oyster-shell lime to the new pea beds which prefer somewhat alkaline soil. Posted by Hello

Go Peggy! Oh well...someone has to do all the work whilst Jim is laid up and on the end of the camera!
A woman's work is never done....:>)

Very true Kiwi!

Most of the yard & garden work for the past few weeks has been done by Peggy and I haven't even felt like manning the camera.

Thanks again for your thoughtful e-card.

Did you use the surrounding soil for your raised beds or did you fill the beds with your own mixture?

We combined the existing soil with fresh compost and refilled the beds with that mixture.

Thanks. I envy that dark soil. Is it alluvial?
