I recently retired and now have the time and location to make a vegetable garden. I intend to make a 32 x 32 raised bed (mounded?) garden in the (sunny all day) grassy field behind the house. I plan to plant next spring but I need to know what to do first, second etc.
I have nearly unlimited access to free seaweed and horse manure.
This Fall: I thought that I would rent a rear tine? rototiller to do the intitial till of the sod and topsoil - Then I would till the seaweed & manure in and cover with more seaweed and let it all WORK through the winter.
Next spring: I thought I would till again with my small tiller - set up the soaker hoses etc. and plant vegies etc. as early as practical.
What to I have wrong and right and what other suggestions can you provide?
