a Whether you garden organically or non-organically, you must have the best possible soil, soil that will produce bumper crops.
Since most soil is far from good, you must build up a rich, humusy, well-drained soil. In conventional gardens, this might be prohibitively expensive. But that's not true in square foot gardening, since it requires only 20 percent of the space of a conventional garden for an equal amount of produce.
First step in preparing a bed is to strip off the grass, then loosen the subsoil, removing rocks and roots.
Don't start out by planting a large garden in poor soil. You'll only be wasting your time and producing a poor harvest.
