I had planned to have my first vegetable garden Spring of this year but my wayward gallbladder had other plans. After surgery in March I was in no shape to prepare beds so it had to be postponed. Now that I am able once again I look forward to Spring ’09 but I need some advise on bed preparation. My soil is almost nothing but rocks and roots (the town should be renamed ‘Rocks and Roots’) and the subsoil is clay so double digging and lots of amending is in order. Should I do this now so the beds have the Winter to settle in or can I wait till early Spring? I am amending the soil with lots of sweet peet and composted manure.
