Hi all,

My boy has outgrown his playground, so I knocked it down and am putting a garden in its place. I have a raised bed there, but I want to put stuff in the ground, too. Problem is, the whole area was mulched with pea gravel.

I've been removing it or making pathways with it but, try as I might, I can't remove all of it from the areas I intend to plant. The soil has a fair amount of clay content, too. If I till it and add some manure and compost, would it work? I'm guessing carrots would be out of the question, but would most vegetables be okay with some gravel content?

Thanks for any input. I'm fairly new at this (if that wasn't obvious already).
