When I prepare soil I dig the whole area maybe even as much as 15 x 9ft plot.
I start by digging a hole down about a foot. Which I then fill with peat
moss and cow manure in a three to one ratio. Peat moss being three. Then I
take a pitchfork and pull the soil down on either side and underneith and mix
it all very well. Until I have a raised bed about 2 ft of mixed soil. six
inches high and 1 1/2ft down. I do this until I have totally done the whole
area. I won't need to fertilize or work this soil for several years. It is
a pleasure to dig in these areas. Chris from Braintree, MA
