Soil prepping?
    #480932 - 09/22/10 08:21 PM (6 years, 1 month ago)

Would there be any reason for a person not to get holes dug and filled with good soil for next season to get some of the work out of the way? I cant see any, except maybe some of the nutrients being washed out?

Oh and the area has a very cold winter.

Since no one wants to answer this guy, I'll give it a shot.
I think this is a great idea and plan on doing the same thing myself this fall season. Do not put any fertilizer in your soil before you put it out.
In the spring all you will have to do is till up the hole with a shovel and mix in some fertilizer before planting. I plan on using the all-purpose fertilizer that is used at the farm where I work. It's a 14-14-14 and everything seems to grow great with it.
Seems to me that digging in the fall, AFTER harvest, is a great way to get a jump on the next season. Especially if you plan to go BIG. :rockon:

Thanks for the reply!

Yeah, I cant see any reason not too, leaving the nutrients and all the good stuff for the spring.
I figure for a newb there will be enough things to worry about in the spring and will be nice to get a that out of the way.

We are on exactly the same page here..
I had a really nice bagseed going this year, and it got ripped. I had it in my backyard, well camouflaged( I thought). Pretty sure the satelite guy saw it from the roof, and came back a week later when I was in the hospital..
So I took my machete and went for a walk this morning. JACKPOT!! I found the absolute perfect spot!
I live near a river, and there's nothing between my yard and the river but woods and fields. It's owned by the gas company and nobody ever goes there. The best part is I have private access from my property, soI can give my crop the proper care and I won't be seen coming or going, and don't have to worry about anyone finding my girls. It's too overgrown even for hunters. I had to chop my way through 50-60 yds of sticker bushes to get there..
So I'm gonna dig my holes this week, and gather my seeds, soil, and nutes over the next 6 months. I'm just gonna get the soil to the plot and leave it in the bags until I'm ready to plant. I've read that it's not good to prep your soil before winter, as the minerals and nutrients will suffer. I 'm using ph neutral organic soil anyway, sooo..

Hmmm... IDK why your nutrients would suffer other than from water runoff or a high water table. Probably not a big deal if you plan on fertilizing anyway.

Sounds like a good spot. Good luck! :thumbup:
