Get a soil test before you add anything more to your garden. Your local extension office offers soil tests kits with directions on how to use them. Your soil sample goes to your state lab for analysis and they will be able to tell you exactly what amendments you may need to add as well as how much of each. The fee for the service is nominal. It's a cheap and easy way to make sure your ground is at it's optimum for next spring's garden.
