When I answered Bill's post, I thought "you know, maybe you ought to use the words "organic matter" instead of "OM" in your post."  (Yes, I talk to myself all the time.)  But then I just went ahead and used "OM" anyway.  Sorry about that!

      We've been growing in hoophouses for 7 years.  We've seen salt build up after 4.  Took the plastic off the first house that exhibited salt build-up and left it off for about 8 months.  In addition to rain, we also ran overhead sprinklers.  Salt build-up exhibited itself again in about 4 months.  We can minimize the effect by incorporating a good quantity of compost.  
    I'm curious about your thoughts on how the compost might have minimized the salt effect. O.M. maybe?
