Healthy Choices to Restore Your Soil: Earth Magic and Protein Crumblies

Make the healthy choice to improve your soils health whether it’s your lawn, garden, orchard, or pasture. Earth Magic and Protein Crumblies (photo) are products that can take your property on the 'Journey to Better Soil Health'.

Earth Magic (also known ad TerraPro) is a unique concentrated humus product that contains a broad spectrum of beneficial mycorrhizae fungi and soil enzymes along with a high percentage of Humic Acids (photo).

Humic Acids have unique biological and chemical characteristics that will provide exceptional benefits to any soil. The objective of this product is to fortify the soil with the best humic acid product possible at the highest concentration possible because they are powerful biologics that can jump start the life of your soil. Humic Acids help soils retain water and plant essential mineral nutrients. Humic Acids can also help provide structure that is essential for drainage in heavy soils. Humic Acid effects on the soil are permanent as they are products of soil chemistry and not the decomposition of organic matter.


The science is clear that most plants and most landscapes including desert plants need a significant level of humic acids in the soil as it’s this substance that defines a top soil. Top soil is a horizon of soil that is rich in Humic Substances and according to research “Humic Acids are essential for a healthy and productive soil” – Journal of Chemical Education, December 2001, Soils Sustain Life!  


In addition, Earth Magic has a full blend of both Endo type and Ecto type mycorrhizal spores. Mycorrhizae are beneficial soil fungi that form associations with plant roots. They become extensions of those roots and help plants explore soil for water and nutrients. Research has also proven that mycorrhizal products can make landscapes dramatically more drought tolerant and the plants healthier. Mycorrhizae help your landscape plants endure the stresses of the environment such as heat, drought, dehydration, and poor soils and they are also critical and essential for the long term soil building process to occur.


Almost without exception both Humus and Mycorrhizae are either missing or are weak in most manmade landscapes including farms. Together they are excellent partners in helping to restore soil productivity.


Protein Crumblies

Protein Crumblies is nature’s best source of nutritional calories for feeding the soil.  Protein Crumblies is derived from selected vegetable proteins (photo). 

This product has been selected for the best ratios of amino acids that can provide the highest protein efficiency value possible. Beneficial Soil Microorganisms are part of the ‘Soil Food Web’ and Protein Crumblies can provide these microorganisms a high quality protein with the highest percent nitrogen per unit of protein. This product has a crude protein content providing a source of slow release organic nitrogen. The nitrogen can become part of the Soil Food Web once totally liberated by the action of the primary, secondary, and tertiary decomposers (soil microorganisms), and many plants can uptake the amino acids derived from this protein as part of their nitrogen budget. Protein Crumblies can be used as a source of slow release nitrogen for plants.


Trees That Please Nursery has Earth Magic and Protein Crumblies available in several container sizes to fit your landscape needs. Use Earth Magic and Protein Crumblies together to restore your soils health (photo).

Weed Identification: Goatheads or Stickers

Goatheads ( Tribulus terrestris ) are native to Southern Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. Goatheads are also called stickers, sticker weed, bullhead, devil’s weed, and puncturevine. Goatheads are easily recognized by their prostrate growth form, leaves with leaflets, yellow flowers, and stickers (Goatheads). If you miss’em visually then they will stab you painfully in the fingers as you work your garden, or stick to your clothing and shoes. Goatheads are the primary reason local bicyclists must get “thorn proof” tires for riding on area trails and streets. Goatheads have prostrate stems that radiate outward from one central point. Leaves are compound with smaller leaflets. Lemon yellow flowers form along the stems and fertilized flowers form fruits.   Fruits consist of several attached structures called nutlets (Goatheads). Each nutlet is a single seed that becomes hard or woody when mature. Each seed has two sharp spines that easily penetrat

Western Soapberry Tree

The Western Soapberry tree ( Sapindus saponaria var. drummondii ) is native to New Mexico. It grows wild from Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana westward through Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Arizona, and Mexico. The fruit of the Western Soapberry tree is a drupe. Mature fruits are translucent, amber colored, and contain a black seed. The mature fruit without the seed will produce a good lather with water and has been used as a soap substitute. Fruits persist on the trees through winter. T he Western Soapberry tree can grow 1′-2′ annually reaching 25′-30′ tall and wide making it a good sized shade tree. Fall leaf color is an attractive golden yellow. Currently, there are no improved varieties of the Western Soapberry Tree. It grows well on the alkaline soils of New Mexico and is very tolerant of heat and drought once established. This tree is rarely affected by disease or insect pests making it an ideal specimen tree for your yard or landscape. S

Weed Identification: Sand Bur

Sand Bur ( Cenchrus longispinus ) is native to North America. It has other names like sand spur, long-spined sand bur, hedgehog grass, and bur grass . Sand Bur is an annual grass usually growing with a prostrate growth form. It is similar in appearance to other grasses prior to seed formation. Individual plants may be 3’ in diameter, sometimes larger. Sand Bur is a common weed of sandy soils but also grows well elsewhere. Sand Bur will often root at stem nodes that are touching the ground. The root system of Sand Bur is shallow and fibrous making them easily pulled (when immature). Sand Bur produces a flowering spike. As seeds begin to form Sand Bur is easily recognized by its numerous sharp or burred seeds or long spines. As the burred seeds mature they are easily separated from the mother plant and their sharp spines stick to virtually anything. Sand Bur can disseminate its seeds long distances because its sharp spines will hitch a ride on skin, animal hides,
