Hi, my husband and I decided to start living the good life and created our first vegetable patch a few weeks ago. It's only a small area (about 6 ft by 10 ft) but our soil doesn't seem to be good quality so we added 3 bags of garden compost and some chicken manure pellets to try and give a good base (we left it for a week before planting anything). We now have some potatoes, red and white onions and carrots planted but we were wondering how often to keep the soil fertilized? Thanks, Kath.
