Symphony of the Soil

We don't grow plants, we grow soil.  Soil grows plants.  This excellent 2 minute video drives the point home better than any long article about the importance of soil.  Watch Symphony of the Soil.

NOTE: When I posted this link they were showing the full version for free--but that ended after a week or so. I had only watched the first part and that part is very good. It provides a good explanation about where our soils come from and why they are all different. Unfortunately, then the video goes down hill. If you do buy it, be aware that the second half of the video is not worth watching.
