Have Pine Trees in Yard

Anonymous added on July 28, 2011 | Answered

I have pine trees in my yard. What can I do to make and produce a better garden? How can I treat the soil for better growth of my vegetables and flowers? And my tomatoes are getting splits in them, like a bug is eating them. What do I do for that?

Over time, pine needles can acidify soil, so I would get your soil tested and correct any pH problems. This will give you a good start to growing in the soil. You may also want to look for plants that like acidic soil. This article has some suggestions:
