Last year I started with 10x5 veg patch sitting in hte dirt. Tilled up the GA clay, added in some plant soil from HD. The only thing that grew were a few small brussell sprouts not worth eating, and my blueberry bushes survived...
The broccoli, lettuce, cauliflower and greens all died.
Now, admittedly this could be becuase i moved out of hte house for a spell to live with the girl friend at the time, bad idea never do that... Parents if you need me to tell your kids not to that let me know!
Im back at my parents house now as they live else where, and yesterday i made a 12ft by 8ft box out of lumber, and its 16" deep. Now, i don't want to add clay to it to fill it up as im sure that was part of my problem last year. Am i save to put screened top soil in there, and if so what should i add to the top soil as im filling the box. Ive laid a landscape fabirc underneath the box to stop things from growing through the bottom, probably a non issue but just to be on the safe side.
I know im late in the season but i want to try and get a few things in the ground this summer, what is a good suggestion for a southern veg bed. It gets full sunlight the majority of the day.
