how to add lime
i got some lime from a local nursery to add to the soil out back where there is a black walnut tree growing in the neighbors' yard, right on the other side of the fence. it seems that walnut tree greatly depletes nitrogen from the soil (am i getting that right?) and so the lime will hopefully amend that. soil seems kind of clay-like too, but that may just be my impression. (last season a tomato plant had fruit with rotted-out bottoms, which is indicative of this issue*)
so how much do i use
& should i just sprinkle it on top
(b/c it's to heavy to blow away in the wind?)
i was thinking to rake up the soil a little and then sprinkle the lime around..? or should i mix it in more?
please & thank you.
