dirt

Home gardeners know a lot about dirt.  Here in El Cajon,  the clay and decomposed granite that makes up the whole of the area away from the small San Diego river habitat,  hardly supports anything more natively than grasses.   But with a ton of fertilizer and compost,  people have planted ornamental, pine, avocado and fruit trees. And like my neighbor, a lot of vegetables.
