Check out Tavia’s square foot gardening plan–isn’t it fun?! I love the unique shape. You can tell from the second picture that the bottom of the U is where the sun is (south side).
- This is my second year with this garden. Last year the cucumbers never came on, and with 9 tomato plants, I didn’t have enough to do even one canning batch. The pumpkin never sprouted last year either. I am looking for advice on what to amend the soil with this year. This is a garden that I dug myself then tilled with a small tiller to about 9 inches. I added 36 bags of dirt, half topsoil, half miracle grow garden mix. (who knew you could spend so much money on dirt!) Plants were started by a variety of methods last year, tomatoes/marigolds indoors, some from seed outside, and a few bought as plants from a local greenhouse. I even had a few donations from family in the way of Chives & Lettuce.
- So the question: how can I find out what is wrong with my soil?
- Oh…and with the tomatoes last year, I did add Bone Meal to the bottom of the hole before transplanting outside. I started them inside, then weathered them before planing. I did have tomatoes, but not nearly what you would expect from 9 plants.
