Meet my other garden pest!
One of the methods I use to improve the soil here, non-chemically, is to dig in, and topdress with SeaSoil. This stuff is amazing! Highly composted fish and forest fines, that you can add directly to the soil without fear of burning. It has no discernable smell ... to the human nose. Eric, however, can definitely smell something, and knows right away when a fresh dressing of SeaSoil has been put down.
Here is the sad result! This bed had beans and radishes well underway, and two squash plants that had been transplanted and dressed with SeaSoil. Within 1 hour, he had hopped right in and had a merry time digging around. Notice hes looking slightly guild-ridden!
