My husband and I just moved into a new home. The previous owners were avid gardeners and have 6 beautiful raised garden beds. One already has huge tomato plants and one has a summer squash. The other four have dried up to the point where it's an effort to even get a shovel in there. I would love to start using all of the beds, but I know I have a lot of work before any thing can be planted in them. I'm a beginner gardener (i've only planted herbs in pots) and have no clue what to do. I've read some posts online and I feel like nothing really addresses my problem.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do to make my soil read to plant in? Any suggestion would be much appreciated!
