We're encouraged to use raised garden beds for our veggies here. Aside from our incredible compost bin, Chris wanted to mix Black Cow with the soil he'd bought. He chafed at the price specially after deciding he needed one more bag. He then spent the time to read ingredients on the store brands, and found a much cheaper Earthgro mixture in the same composition. Since we no longer can buy the separate ingredients at our local stores, this saved money and time.
Raised bed garden is the best way to have a garden unless you live on a farm,I use composted manure from Lowe's, it's cheaper. I also apply some 10-10-10 fertilizer to the garden when needed, good luck.
