amendments by truckWell, after waiting all week for the trucks to arrive, they showed up Saturday morning. We had 3 truck loads come and spread all of our amendments that were pre-mixed on the ground. It made quite a mess from the lime that was spread to the very dry topsoil. Next week the soil will be tilled to mix the amendments to a depth of four feet. This will raise the pH of the soil from 5.6 to around 6.5….a sweet spot for grapes.

Here is what we added to the 1.3 acres:

Mined lime 10 tons
Gypsum 5 tons
Compost 15 cubic yards
Calcium phosphate 2 tons
Potash 1 ton
