HelloHello,

Good for you. Now is a good time to prepare for a spring vegetable garden.

You will need a good mix of garden soil and compost. I’m attaching several bulletins from MSU Extension which addresses the type of soil that you will need and how to go about adding it to your garden. https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/building_healthier_soils_for_your_garden

Most nurseries in your area will have supplies of compost and garden soil which will suit your purpose. I suggest that you visit several nurseries and learn what materials they have so you can find the proper mix for your garden.

I hope this helps you with your garden.
