If I sat down and listed all the things I think about on a daily basis, I'm pretty sure that dirt probably wouldn't make the top 100. Sure, it's always underfoot, but it's just something I take for granted. I might kick it off my shoes, try to vacuum it up, curse it when the dog brings it into the house, wash it off my hands or even dig in it to plant flowers, but it's just not ever top of mind. It's kind of just there.
I bet that my dad thinks about soil a bit more than me. Maybe not now when the air is cold, but during the summer when he plants his garden in the backyard. Even though I don't have the green thumb he does, I do know that bad soil means bad yield of those cherry tomatoes I love so much.
Yet, even as I'm popping them into my mouth off the vine on a hot summer day, I don't give the soil from which it came nearly enough credit. Let's face it - good soil is literally the foundation for good food. And, since I do love good food (I basically ate my way through New York City last week, but that's another story) I should probably give credit where credit is due - thanks, dirt.
Unfortunately, in many places around the world, good soil is never taken for granted because it's a rarity. Without good soil, food production halts and food security becomes a very real danger.
