While slowly and carefully digging potatoes, trying hard not to damage them, I had a good look at the dirt yesterday.

Altho it is dry the dirt is still retaining a bit of moisture. It is penetrated with thousands of roots and worm tunnels, and infused with coarse compost, twigs, pebbles, sand, seeds, eggs and worm castings, not to mention all the unseen bacteria, fungi, protozoa and such. It couldn’t be much better.
