Oh alright, you got me. I stole someone else’s slogan. Hopefully Pike won’t get all freaked out over it. As a matter of fact, I’ll change one word and that’ll change the whole meaning. Instead, I’ll say Play in the SOIL. Have I lost you yet? Some folks don’t know the difference between dirt and soil. Soil is loaded with biological activity from worms, all the way down to the tiniest mitochondria. Dirt is all but devoid of any life. Soil that is rich in humus requires few if any inputs for growing all manner of vegetation. Today, the boys and I took an adventure into the world of soil biology while we planted potatoes.
