Answer: You can mix leaves, grass clipping, and other organic materials into the soil. Then give them a few weeks to decompose and plant the garden. By repeating this process and using leaf mulches, which are also mixed in at the end of each season, you will build your soil over time. It may be necessary to add some extra nitrogen if there is lots of undecomposed organic matter in the soil. I would also suggest you consider purchasing compost from a local soil yard. These are usually reasonably priced and really get your soil off to a good start. Growing cover crops in areas to be planted next season is another effective approach. Thanks for the question!
