I don't have much space to garden but if you like to explore different ideas I love square foot gardening by mel ?? Forgot last name. He also sells his soil at lowes. It has 5 different compost, vermiculite, peat moss , and 2 other things. It is organic! This is by far the best way to garden and very easy. And great for small or large areas. Good luck!

yea square foot gardening in raised beds beats the hell out of row cropping in the ground his books worth a read the problem I'm having is that none of the store near me are at all ready for the early spring not much in the way of choices pretty much all they have is miracle grow which after working for scotts miracle grow for 6+ years I wont trust at all
