I’m a newbie gardener. I just set 5 metal raised garden beds. They’re 1 1/2’ tall/deep. I’m located in Ohio, where we have heavy clay soil. I want to grow fruit (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries) in these beds. Veggies to come next year. I’m looking for cheap/free natural resources from my property to help fill the deep beds. We have been doing serious work on our house and have accumulated a mound of clay (2 stories high). Could I layer clay over logs with grass clippings? Just to fill the bottoms up cheaply. When it gets closer to top then start adding compost and top off with good soil. Or should I keep the clay out and not utilize it at all. 2 beds I need to use right away, the other 3 can sit until next spring.
What's brown and sticky? ... a stick. Or a tiny ad.
