Elevated Organic Vegetable Garden

Anonymous added on June 1, 2015 | Answered

We have a new 2'x4' ELEVATED red cedar garden box and a couple of tomato boxes. We purchased some organic vegetables at a nearby farm and would like to plant them in a couple of days. We bought one bag of organic compost and one bag of organic potting soil. So much info online re: raised beds, but not elevated. We have no "topsoil" that would be organic from our yard. The question is: What else do we need to purchase for soil in order to fill the garden enough and keep it organic? Also, what type of stakes or cages do we buy if we want the tomatoes to truly be organic? And should we try to use some sort of organic mulch in the garden?
