I'm starting my first garden. I tilled up the dirt, which is very red, about 6" deep and removed all of it. I was told to get nice, rich soil to put in. Am I doing this correctly? Should I till deeper then add the soil? The ground below the layerI tilled is pretty hard and red.

to work it deeper
than six inches. I wouldn't suggest that you dispose of
the red hard soil, rather build it up as I have suggested
above.

Good luck with your first efforts. We are always here to
give you a hand.
