Humus Part 3: Couldnt Stand The Weather?

I’ll never forget the first time that I saw Stevie Ray Vaughn play. I can’t. Because way before I ever saw him, I heard him. A friend who was a friend of a friend who was a roadie for The Police swore up and down that he could get us backstage at the small club where SRV was playing. He didn’t quite have that kind of pull, but we did get to hang around a back door during the sound check if we promised not to hassle anyone, namely Vaughn. What I heard was akin to four musical jet engines. At the

Humus Part 2: You Need Fungus, Brother!

When the word Fungus is mentioned, Turfheads often run for the spray rig. Regardless if you want to talk pesticide free turf or not, there has to be a better discussion on Fungi and the resulting role in Humus development by being as key in decompositional shredding as strings on James Hetfield’s guitar. The first stage in the development of Humus is called Catabolism. It isn’t the warm up act, it is part of a multi-billing. This process should be initiated by fungi and fungal bodies. In their

Humus Part 1: Not Dirty, Hairy!

The Difference between Dirt and Soil has to do with this amazing word: Humus. I love humus. I do. I spend time contemplating how it works, what it is about and how it affects everything that we do in soil management. So in my small brain, any discussion about what soils are and are not has to start (and end) with some kind of thought as to what does and does not happen to the Humus content in the soil. Most of us will agree that soil is perhaps the most major natural resource that we are in

My Perspective On The Most Important Part

It’s time. Recent forum discussions, people asking me and even Herr Peter have prompted me to get with it and talk about soils. I’m told that this is one of the things that people want to hear most from me. That’s nice. My perspective comes from having the words Soil Consultant make my living, a zillion soil tests looked at, a  half-zillion golf course visits and way way too many nights up late writing recommendations. I’ve been told that this perspective, while not unique, is valuable and pr
