I Began the morning with a trip to Lowes for Black Cow soil, some rich top soil, and some organic blood meal.
I turned over the current top soil and mixed in some top soil to even out the hillside and raised beds. I added some bags of Black Cow to the top soil after I made my rows of raised beds.
Last step I added some organic blood meal for some added Nitrogen.
I am planning on planting in a few days. Want to allow the soil time to settle and the nitrogen to disperse evenly after the next rainy day
This hillside I am planting on is notorious for bad poison Ivy. After digging, mixing, and turning over the entire hillside I am fully expecting a wicked case of poison Ivy. It was a hot day and foolishly worked in shorts and no gloves.
Stay tuned for picturesof the itchy outbreak if it occurs.
