    I just knew you were going to say soda mainly because I am drinking a glass of it now. :p I think some things in moderation though are not quite all? that bad. 🙂 I enjoy watching your videos & I have grown my own veggies before in pots. One cherry tomato plant did crazy well – it grew along the fence measuring nearly 7 ft. I was giving them away to my neighbors because I had more than one cherry tomato plant. Soon investing in an acre & look forward to more growing once there.

    Hi there – you should check out the Back To Eden garden system. The creator of the system is very heavy with religious talk, but the concepts are simple: put wood chips down on your ground, and? grow everything in the wood chips. It works well with perennials, I’m going to experiment in the spring with the system.

    Check it out! Cheers.

    I forgot to add you do have to wait a few years when using only wood chips, but the rewards are great and? saves you lots of money, and it helps with water run off. If you don’t like the look of wood chips put a fine layer of mulch or pine straw on top.

    When doing a raised bed if possible put logs of wood on bottom then put lots of leaves, then fill with you soil, compost, and use some of the clay soil, look up hugelkultur it works great. This is what happens in the wood naturally. The logs help hold in moisture for years. In some areas I used just wood chips free from tree cutters and the area is almost ready to plant, it holds lots of moisture and the mushrooms that were growing also helps the soil (No more soil erosion in the? front yard.

    if the money is an issue and you are in shape maybe there are other ways. one way would be to amend the soil with sand and forestry compost which has large none decomposed matter in it that will keep the clay from clumping. You also want to look for free lumber for the raised beds.I use discarded 5 gallon nursery containers.For that matter any large containers will do. There? is a world of free stuff out there if you ask around and make your own compost.
    Happy gardening

    This is for those of you who can. Make? you own compost. I’ve been doing it for twelve years and earth worms are my best friends.i have found that bigger is better when it comes to composting.Use a two stage system at least and if you have the room make three stages. Don’t mix the compost with a shovel in the first stage.You’ll decimate the worm population.The best tool is a pitch fork. If you have one of those twist tillers they work well also.

    To littlepup 01 I live in Illinois. My house is built on a old farm field. The ground is mostly clay. I tried everything I could to get my garden to produce something more than weeds. I finally went to raised beds with compost and I have no real problems now. ?
