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!

Ive been tossing the stuff away quite a few hundred buckets so far some went to my brthers first house and quite a bit to his second home.

  • Over 100 buckets when building the Koi Pond

  • About 80 buckets from this pond.

And quite a few from the back hill, front yard and other places, I am so tired of digging lol.
