In my last post I said I was going to decide what to plant, but thought I should go over the soil mixture I used. In my first post I listed the shopping list and mentioned you need 5 cu ft of compost mix along with 1 4 cu ft bag of vermicculite and 2.2 cu ft of peat moss.
I went with:
2 bags of Altum’s soil amendment
1 bag of mushroom compost
1 bag of organic garden soil amendment.
I read in The All New Square Foot Gardening book to lay a tarp on the ground and dump your soil on there to mix but I found this not as easy as it sounds. I would recommend mixing in your raised bed.
I used a pitch fork to mix it all up. Ready for some seeds! Until next time…
