Sometimes the first time you mix up a soil and try to garden things don't grow so well. After time the soil seems to settle in and microbial activity picks up and then things do better. I suggest you mix in about 2-3 inches of well decomposed compost or humus and then water the area well and give it a couple of weeks to settle. I think your next attempt and especially your late winter garden will be much better.
