Also, best not to grow the same thing in the same bed two years in a row. Rotate what you grow.
Like Lireo does, I put manure in mine (did it yesterday) along with ash from the fire. Also does no harm to buy some food / fertiliser and sprinkle it on. A good dog over too works wonders, especially this time of year when the ground can be frozen. A gentle dig, leaving the big chunks on the top, will allow the soil to break down naturally.
Perhaps you could grow herbs, or flowers for cutting, where you grew veg last year.
such a great thing to get the kids involved.
