So, this has been my first year attempting a garden and I have had mixed success (as I expected - actually, more success than I expected!). It is fall here now (in southeast Alaska) and the rain is falling, leaves are changing etc. I know that, besides pulling my dead plants, I need to be adding more nutrients to my soil.
HELP?!! I am a complete newbie to all of this and have been adding seaweed and coffee grounds... but I don't want to add too much of one thing and not enough of another - suggestions?
We plan to add more top-soil next spring as this is an above ground bed that we created and I got sick of paying for dirt this spring and just called it good - though it needs another 4 inches probably! I have been told that composting here doesn't work very fast here (more on the order of 2 years... from what I've been told), so I ruled out my first plan of lasagne gardening.
I really need any suggestions and the how's and why's of it too :-) Thanks!
