I have been working a small urban lot for about 6 years. It has produced well but I know I have much to learn and there are techs I want to apply. The backyard gets good sun. But those deer...

Welcome to the forum from SW Ohio!  Do you have raised beds with Mel's mix, or are you doing in-ground gardening on your lot?  BTW, we love pictures here.

Hi, Trixie. We love our deer, so all of our gardening has to be done behind walls and fences, or up on a balcony. glad you\'re here  from Redding, CA.

So sorry about the down vote. It was an accident. 

I am building one raised bed at this time. Plan on deeper ones and using hugelkultur. I use compost mostly.

No problem! We all have the learning curve.

Hugelkultur provides a great long term way to fill deep beds without using expensive compost and other ingredients. My woods has an abundance of dead ash trees with many limbs on the ground. I used a bunch of them to fill the bottom of two new 12' beds so that I only had to put 8" of soil on the top of the wood. I quickly found that I had to put straw on top of the wood before adding the soil in order to keep the soil from working down between the pieces of wood. The first year of those beds the soil dropped about 4" due to the decomposition of the straw and some of the wood. They are down another 3" this spring that I have to fill back up before planting.  The good news is that those beds were exceptionally productive last summer, and I expect even more from them this year.

To be honest, Trixie, I don't think anyone uses the up/down vote.  Does anyone use them, fellow gardeners?
