I have had notoriously bad soil. It is extraordinarily sandy and doesn't hold water. My garden is about 15x10 feet. Last summer I mulched with a bale of alfalfa, which had mostly disappeared by fall, and about 2 bags of leaves. Also, I added about a wheelbarrow full of compost to the area. Once my garden died off, I put a new compost pile in one corner and planted hairy vetch/rye for a green manure crop. I heavily mulched with with about 15 bags of leaves.
Now that it is starting to near spring
, I'm going to need to dig in the vetch/rye and let sit for 6 weeks. Should I add some fresh manure (probably goat) at the same time or do you think that it would be doing too much? I don't see how it could hurt, but I'm new. :rolleyes: and there's a lot I don't know.
