Answer: You are definitely on the right track. With some more work and adding compost each season as you transition from one crop to another, that spot should turn into one fabulous garden. As for the lime, that depends on your soil pH. Your County Extension Office can assist you in having the soil pH tested. However, based on your description of the clay and the other things you added, I would suggest you go ahead and garden in the soil as it is. If a soil test shows a low pH you can always add lime later.
