Answer by Rachel
I borrowed a roto-tiller and broke up a section of dirt (you could do this by hand with a shovel, just keep turning over the dirt). Then I bought a bag of some kind of organic soil (I found it at HomeDepot and it said right on it that it was good for vegetable gardens). Then I dumped that on top of my garden and kind of mixed that in with the other dirt. Then I bought some seedlings from a local nursery, as well as some packets of seeds and followed the instructions on the packet for planting. For tomatoes and peppers, I would recommend getting the seedling. Cucumbers worked well from the packet of seeds, as did snap peas. I tried spinach from seeds but got nothing! I’m no expert but I ended up with lots of veggies!
