This year I'm not only starting a veggie garden, but it should be a permaculture too! The vegetable garden is about 1300 square feet (120m2). Unfortunately, I already tilted the soil last year, when I was still under the assumption that putting in much physical effort would eventually be repaid by mother nature, lol.
So, at this point I have 1300 square feet of bare soil. It's quite sandy. There used to be grass on top of this land for the last 100 years or more. I burried the top soil about 8-10 inches below the surface (again, before I discovered permaculture).
I have gotten my hands on 12m3 (about 144 wheelbarrow's) of composted wood chips, 6-7m3 of fresh wood chips and I have about 1m3 of homemade organic compost. Also I have some blood meal.
Question: what layer should I start with and when should I add the blood meal?
I was thinking of the following: 1. first my own organic compost (I only have enough for 0.4 inch), 2. put the blood meal on top of the organic compost, 3. add 4 inches of the composted wood chips, 4. add 2 inches of fresh wood chips.
Am I doing it right?
