Muck Farm

Muck (also known as Black Soil) is a soil from drained swamplands made up of Humus. There aren’t many Muck Farms in the United States and likely won’t be anymore, because of wildlife conservation.

Muck is denser and can retain more nutrients and moisture. Humus is actually a material not fully understood. It’s different than organic matter – it can be almost like a jelly or spongy substance and stay that way for a long, long, LONG time – over a thousand years!

I had a couple other shots showing more contrast between the soil and vegetables, but I went with this one, because I really like the perspective.

I’m still deciding whether to crop-out the distant horizon-line and trees, or just leave it.
