Hey guys! New here, here is my intro thread if you wanna say hi. https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/vi ... 31&t=68353
Anyways, I was excited a couple days ago and dug some holes/trenches and threw some plants in them. After researching some gardening guides, I can plainly see that my garden looks nothing like "good examples" haha.
My main concern is what is wrong with the way I did this if anything, and how I can fix any problems.
Are the plants going to drown when it rains because the holes will fill up with water?
Should I remove the grass sections between the holes/trenches and just make one giant square plot?
Do I need way more bagged soil?
The holes are about 3 to 4 inches below grass level, and then the soil/clay is chopped up and loose about 10 inches in the hole below the plants. The plants are surrounded by about 2 inches of garden soil (potting soil?). Most of the dirt material in the trenches is a soft clay... I'm in Eastern Missouri.
The two squares contain one watermelon plant each.
The one circle hole contains one zucchini plant.
The two rows closest to the watermelons contain 3 sweet potato plants each.
The third row contains 5 tomato plants.
Thanks for any help!
