This weekend I took a few trips to the garden center for: garden soil, 2 types of compost, vermiculite and peat moss. I added 1.5 inches of garden soil to the bottom and then mixed the other ingredients for the top 6 inches. I would have loved to have omitted the garden soil and use mix for the whole thing but there are several beds to do this year and the garden soil is a lot less expensive.
After I added the soil I gave it a nice long drink and added the hoops. I'll have to wait until next weekend to plant because it's dark by the time I get home from work.
The weather has been nice enough to set the seedling out on the front porch for a few hours. They went back in when the wind started to pick up. As soon as the row covers come they will go into the garden under the hoops.
