fall vegetable gardening portland oregon
I have a raised 4 by 12 foot raised bed that has been half bush beans and half carrots. I am considering a crop of carrots and some lettuce for the fall. How would you suggest I amend and prepare the soil? I realize that the bean half is likely nitrogen rich at this point. Also any additional crop choices would be appreciated. Thanks, Wes Denton
