The Q&A Archives: poor soil

Question: I live in Abilene,TX. The soil is very hard and when I tried to grow a sage bush and rose moss, I ended up digging it up because they just wouldn't grow. I would love to grow a small garden and do something with the lawn.I have been rakeing the leaves,and trying to get top of the soil loose.It's been really dry here and the soil is like powder,the first 1/2 in.There is also a wood fence in the back and thought about growing cucumbers,peppers,tomatos,ect,will that be ok?
