I remember ....

I remember Dig in Deep remarking how many years he had taken to get his allotment soil up to a really good standard as he stood and contemplated the work required on the soil in his new garden.

I have called to mind his comments many times as I deal with the second allotment project.

The allotment holders on each side of me have been saying similar things all year.

After all the hard work you will reap the benefits  

Have a Read about Terra Preta on Wikipedia - Experts still do not fully understand what happens.
Seems that  if you mix 10% by volume charcoal (primed with urea) with  the soil you get permanent benefits !
