Are you sure you want to leave ?
I grow mostly in raised beds. We started with a half & half mixture of soil & mushroom manure compost. We also did half & half mixture of soil and leaf compost. We added some compost each year to the beds but we seem to have developed a soil that does not retain water well. Any suggestions as to what we can add to get it to hold water better. We moved last year to a new place. We now have enough room to build a compost bed to make enough for the whole garden. We have a horse stable nearby that allows you to come pickup from a pile they have near the road. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
