Answer: I assume you are planning to build raised beds for your garden. You should be able to grow the plants you listed -- one caution, though. You might want to choose carrot varieties that are shorter and stockier, rather than the long, slender varieties. I also assume you will be bringing in topsoil. What fertilizers/soil amendments you will need depends on the quality of the topsoil. All garden soils benefit from the addition of organic matter -- grass clippings, shredded leaves, compost, and well-rotted manure are all good choices. Also you might want to have the soil tested -- either with a home test kit or through a testing service. (Your Cooperative Extension office should be able to direct you to a soil testing service; their number is 208/799-3096).
