Audrey Stallsmith from bobvila said that Although the idiom “common as dirt” is often used as an insult, good dirt isn’t so common and remains essential to the productivity of a garden.
Fortunately, with a little effort you can improve your garden’s soil.
Even better, most vegetables, whether they’re root, leafy, legume, or fruiting types, can thrive in roughly the same kind of soil. Just be sure to find them “common ground” in nutrient-rich earth that drains well while still retaining adequate moisture.
But before you get started on your garden, you will want to get your soil tested to determine its pH and its current health and fertility.
