Testing Soil and Trailer Mods

Testing Soil and Trailer Mods

This week, we started testing the soil with the university and extension. We also built some trailer sides so we can bring in more soil, mulch, and more. I put a voice changer in just for funzies.

The video kicks off with a rundown on why it’s super crucial to check out the soil for gardens and fields. Lucky for folks around here, the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture offers soil testing services. The whole process gets broken down, especially the part about snagging a bunch of soil samples from different spots in a zigzag pattern to really get the full picture of the soil’s condition.

Then there’s a bit where the favorite tool for the job, the “corana soil Digger upper,” gets some spotlight. It’s a champ at scooping up and cleaning those muddy samples. While getting hands-on with the sampling, the video sheds light on the cool fact that finding earthworms is like a high-five from Mother Nature, signaling healthy soil. There’s also a real moment shared about the tiny mishap of touching the soil samples directly and having to redo that part to keep the test accurate. It’s all about the ups and downs of the learning curve.

Later on, the scene shifts to some trailer tinkering. It’s all about transforming a Caravan trailer into a versatile beast for hauling everything from compost to brush. The video walks through adding sides to the trailer, making it a real MVP for any homesteading task. It’s a great peek for anyone into DIY and making things more efficient.

So that’s the scoop on the latest video – a blend of practical tips, a dash of mishaps, and a whole lot of making things better, one step at a time.
