Today, I joined in on the groundchat, where we talked about Urban Soil. The topic was interesting, but I learned so much more. The first thing I learned is that there is such a thing as a “soil scientist” – someone who studies soil. I had assumed previously that this fell under geology, but they have their own profession.
The host of groundchat, Cristina shared a blog post about Urban Soil which led me to looking at some other posts on the blog, including this post about soil structure. I’m still doing lots of research about soil, I never knew that there was so much to read about “dirt!”
In other news, look what I found peeking out of the ground in an area where the snow has melted!
Of course, the rest of the yard is still covered in snow, but it hit a balmy 40 today
