I've really enjoyed reading your posts to all the other novice gardeners. The information you've provided regarding making your own soil and keeping those nasty bugs away has been most helpful. However, I'm still left with a very basic question and I'm sort of embarrassed to ask. Here goes:
My experience with gardening is limited to containers. This year, however, I have a very small backyard to play with. My questions are: 1.) After testing my soil at my local nursery and the soil is found to be "good", would I need to pull up all the grass before planting my seeds/seedlings/flowers? 2.) Can I simply make the soil recipe you gave and dump it on top of the existing soil and then plant? 3.) What is the easiest way to get the grass up? 4.) Would investing in a hoe be a good idea?
Whew! I guess I just need to know the best way to get my yard ready to receive the seedlings. By the way, I will be starting my seeds in peat pots tomorrow. I'm so excited!
Look forward to hearing from you, Mitch!
