We had no idea today was Earth Day when we planned this to be the day we dig our garden. What a great coincidence! My partner in life and vegetable growing did most of the digging, while I picked out the weeds and rocks.
We had to do a little math in order to figure out what we needed. Our garden is approximately 12' x 17', and we figured we want a total depth of 18 inches, so we're going to mix in 6 inches of the good stuff (or .5 feet). 17 x 10 x .5 = 85 cubic feet / 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard = 3.15 yards of compost.
By the way, did you check out that garlic?? I'm so proud.
