Hey HelpfulGardeners, I'm new to gardening. I've been lurking a few weeks and finally decided to come out and say hello to the community. I'm looking for feedback so I can become a better gardener.
This is my (and my wife's!) 3rd garden bed, planted 7/19/2015 in Austin TX, zone 8b. The bed is 18' x 2' x 1'. We used 16 cubic feet of Kellog's organic raised bed soil, 11 cubic feet of top soil. We layered the different types of soil, then mixed the layers together, and lastly topped off with 4 cubic feet of compost.
1/3 cup of epsom salt and ~2 lbs of Tomato-Tone mixed into the center of bed before planting. Thoroughly watered within an hour after being planted.
Each plant is 2' apart. From the north end; basil, basil, garlic chive, Anaheim pepper, Bell pepper, Better Boy tomato, strawberry, strawberry, strawberry.
