Soil For Vegetables

Some of my soil bakes and hardens quickly after irrigation, but I have

an acre or so of sandy soil. Would this be best for garden truck and


Sandy, loamy soil is better than the heavy soil for vegetables and

berries, if moisture is kept right, because it can be more easily

cultivated and takes water without losing the friable condition which is

so desirable. A heavier soil can, however, be improved by the free use

of stable manure or by the addition of sand, or by the use of one or

more applications of lime at the rate of 500 pounds to the acre, as may

be required - all these operations making the soil more loamy and more

easily handled.
