Last month we continued our process of building our vegetable garden. We wanted to continue with our square foot garden beds because the raised bed is beneficial for so many reasons, but we had to get a handle on all the weeds in the area. In addition, it is necessary to amend this clay soil. We are going two routes with the garden. We are sheet mulching the remainder. After this we will build terraces in the back section. I think that strawberries will be very happy up there, and I will be even happier to eat them.
We put the dairy based compost under neath the cardboard and the brewery based compost on top of the cardboard. Then we placed a few inches of mulch on top.
