I wish I had some clay right now! I finally moved down to Monmouth County from Union County and the soil here is laden with sand. Planted my first garden this spring and it was a bust. It was last minute, I admit. I added compost, fertilizers, worm castings and the soil obviously still lacked in nutrients, I ended up with weak plants and a small yield of bland tomatoes. Visited my old neighbor who also grows tomatoes and hers were green and lush with tons of fruit and they didn’t even do much to the soil. A lot of soil building in my future. I’m considering asking my family if I can dig up some soil from their yard!
