I have the the 4 framed beds from last year. I told son I need some garden soil to fill them and make it better soil. Apparent he put too much horse manure in last year or too fresh. It killed most of the plants or stunted them so did not grow. plus high Ph. My nephew's stuff did the same thing. They had hauled him in some too fresh horse manure he said. He wanted to have a garden to have stew veggies as they are so high.
I have some pallets to use if I can tear them apart. He also said I can have the bracing boards from in the shed when it gets moved and set on the floor. I think I want to use those for shelving in the shed. Wait and see on that. I do want more than the 4 beds I think.
Still some water standing in my back yard where the snow melted. Garden area I had last year is dry enough.. Bed are damp but workable now. I have told him I have to plant or be too late. I had to buy bags of dirt/soil at the store as so high. Maybe Walmart will be cheaper if I have to buy that way. Got to be better than what the dirt is here . I know got bag or two down home that was potting soil from Walmart and no good for little plants. So much rocks in it. County agent said too much feritlizer in the beds and to not add any and get retested this spring.
Apparently the county agent has been here to test the soil in the beds. I saw a little core hole in each bed. I have two bags of soil to go in each frame. I had not opened them yet as they had frozen. He will be testing just waht was there from last year, The sawdust I added last fall. Not worked in but just a thin layer on top. We will see.
I got big hand full of onion sets to plant and mostly likely too many. I use like one onion a year at Xmas for dressing.
