Proper potting soil mix for vegetable and strawberries in a raised bed

Asked March 11, 2020, 4:23 PM EDT

Hi, I am wanting to grow vegetables and strawberries this year in a raised bed and some pots. I'm not sure what kind of soil to use. Also would like to know if I should mix in anything else to the soil (fertilizer, minerals, etc.) to have a successful garden. Thanks for any advise you can give me. Daryl
