Know your farmer, know your soil

I can honestly say it was the only dirt I ever looked at and thought, “Hm, that looks almost good enough to eat.”

Put a high-def video of muck soil or one of the many other excellent soils used to grow fruits and vegetables in a grocery produce department, and your average locavore would go ga-ga.

The hipster restaurants could bring you a dish of the black soil or muck or honeoye to run your fingers through before you ordered the locally-sourced organic sustainable fennel.

And while we’re on the subject of soil, if anyone can recommend something black or mucky or otherwise that’s good for growing bluegrass in the shade in Johnson County, Kan., I’m all ears.
