Good place for compost?
Hi all. Just found the 'Utah' gardening forum...cool to know its here! I live in Farmington. I just bought my house recently and am prepping some raised garden beds.
I grew up in Idaho on a potato farm...so I have a built in desire to grow things.
Anyways...growing up in Rexburg, I've learned that the soil in Utah sucks. Sorry to any clay-lovers out there...but give me a nice sandy soil anyday of the week.
So among the other benefits of a raised garden bed, I'm bringing in material to fill the beds with and totally skipping the hard clay crap in my backyard.
So...I just posted a thread in the soil forum asking for advice on what to fill the veggie garden beds with. Does anyone here have any advice?
I would really appreciate any advice on what types of ammendments to add (compost, peat, perlite, sand, top-soil, etc) and also some good places to get the stuff!
Thanks in advance for any help!
