I ordered 9 sq. yards of soil yesterday, and today 9 sq. yards was delivered but it was compost. Though it's really good quality, now I have 9 sq yards of compost, plenty of mulch and wood chips, but no soil for the sheet mulch beds I planned on making tomorrow. If it were just veggies going in, I think I'd be fine with it, but they're fruittrees that are being planted. Mango, guava, fig, avocado, pitamba, and cinnamon. Some comfrey and pigeon pea as well. Any suggestions? Would anyone out there just use the compost without soil? Why? Or why not?

The trees are going to go down into the dirt beneath your sheet mulch anyway. I would lay out what I had and get to planting
