Final raised bed recipe

I finally asked someone with some garden expertise, and found out that topsoil was most definitively the wrong thing to order for our raised beds.

Now we’ve mixed in a hodge podge of other amendments in attempt to make it somewhat useful. They are: “nature’s helper” (mulch-like product), moo-nure, as previously mentioned, and vermiculite. I sprayed it with the hose and drainage still isn’t ideal, so a few more bags of these may be in order.

Lesson learned – topsoil’s a no-no! Next up…planting lettuce and spinach…
