hi all,more advice please.
i live on an old air field,iv got a good south facing patch im turning over for veg.
i broke the turf last night to find that half way up my lawn the soil is only five inches deep and laid over the old tarmac runway,the other half is fine and so far iv cut one bed and dug the turf in so as im so late starting what should i focus on first crop wise?
in 3 weeks time i will have acsess to as much fresh chicken manure as i want,it may smell a bit ripe but at least it will bulk out the top end of my garden and breathe some life into the ground for the autumn?
firstly what will grow well in the shallow soil?
i should have 4 maybe 5 beds cut out by the end of the week,what should i be looking to put in them to get started? and im assuming fresh manure will do as i havnt got time to let it rot?
any advice is welcome
