So I have been trying for the last three years to successfully grow a productive garden. Unfortunately it has been very unpredictable...one year pretty good the next nothing to the next year just so so. We have amended and tested the soil thru the county extension and even though it said everything was good I just can't get a really productive garden going. But I won't give up. I am looking forward to spring to give it another try. This past fall I tilled in a lot of chicken manure straight from my chickens (another "getting back to real" attempt) so I am hoping maybe this will be the thing that has been missing. Anyone else into food gardening? I would love to hear what works for you.
