Day 19: Mud Wars

We've been slogging through mud. Last Tuesday drenched us, and just as the place was drying out another rainstorm hit.

I actually like the rain, I just don't like the aftermath. Our house is set atop a bed of clay. It's concrete hard in the summer and soupy slick during the rainy season.

We've been working with it, slowly amending it with compost. After four years our garden area looks great. Our next focus is the horse's paddock.

Homesteader's Tip: Adding organic material is a great way to improve both sandy and heavy clay soils. Composted kitchen scraps, aged manure, leaves and yard waste are perfect additions. It takes time, but building a better soil will help your garden grow.
