We’re nearly ready for planting, after two weeks of rebuilding our little gardening corner in our backyard. The fence is up to keep out our family dog. My husband constructed raised beds from cedar, making use of our slope.
We’ve filled the beds with four different types of soil and amendments:
Sandy loam soil
Rabbit manure compost
Composted humus that we sifted from aged vegetable peelings, dried leaves, etc.
One of our inspirations for focusing so much on building the soil was a class I took on organic agriculture.
