I know I need to have a soil test done, but I'm wondering if someone could tell me what they think is not right with my soil. It reminds me of baby powder; you know when you pour water on it, it just runs off. When I water my garden, it looks like it's soaked, but when I dig down maybe a half inch or so, it is still dry. Right now I seem to have a gopher making some mounds. When the dirt is pushed up, it is very loose but, again, water just runs off of it and doesn't soak in. It's a wonder any of my plants are still growing. I'm trying to add compost, but it takes a while until it's ready to use. Last weekend I bought some bagged compost/mulch and spread it over a large area to see if that will help. Any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks.
