Preparing the soil for this year’s growing
March 13, 2021 at 3:38 pm ReplyfreshgreensPrivate messageGreenhorn
My only experience in growing vegetables is growing greens indoor. This is going to be my first year planting other things outside. How do you prepare the soil in this season? I can only think of adding compost which I’m afraid can be only very minimal compared to what’s supposed to be done.
I’m open to your ideas! 🙂 ThnksMarch 15, 2021 at 2:02 pm Replyhands_and_dirtPrivate messageGreenhorn

Hi freshgreens, where do you live? Compost is a great place to start with and if there’s only one other thing a beginner should know, it’s MULCH! Try to get your hands on a bale of straw or shredded coconut husks or rice/wheat hulls and such. Spreading a layer of that in your growing bed, then only clear a little bit out near what you’re planting. You’ll save tons of time by avoiding weeds, watering… lots of advantages!
