Q.Liming My Fall Garden
I live close to Lake Maurepas in southern La. I feel that my garden needs lime since I haven’t done that in a while and I used pine needles as a mulch this summer. I am an organic gardener. I normally have a good garden, but this year, my garden was weak and there were lots of problems. It was excessively hot this year, and I think that was part of it. My question is: If I want to grow a few fall items like garlic, mustard and collards, can I lime now? If I do, when can I fertilize? These will only take 3 rows of a 7 row garden.
The lime you add now won't affect the soil for several months. http://www.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/adding-lime-to-soil.htm
Organic gardening is an extensive subject, about which one can always learn more. This is one book that I've found extremely helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/organic-gardening-book.htm
