New Garden

New Garden

Hello everyone, This is the first spring in my house, and I'm determined to start a vege garden. As far as I know, the ground has only been a lawn, so I might need to supplement the soil to get it into shape. (Figure I can get one of those kits of Home Depot to test it.) I started a compost pile in the fall, but it doesn't seem to be ready. (I've found worms in it...but the leaves haven't broken down.) Should I try to mix in the leaves and hope they break down during the year? Or should I try adding something else? Or not worry about it at all... I'm in Zone 5B, Western New York. (In case it matters) Thanks to all for your help in getting my first real garden started. ~Kimberly
