New garden in freshly cleared wooded area

How do I start a garden in a freshly cleared wooded area. It will be flowers and herbs and I will have a vegetable garden in the pasture and it will be a new plot also. Will I need lime to reduce the wood acid? Any help will be appreciated.

I would start out by getting the soil tested ( [1]). This will tell you where the soil stands and if it does need to be treated for acidity or other problems. If it is acidic, this article will help you: [2]

I would also take the time to add rotted manure and compost, as much as you can. When starting a garden, you only get one chance at the beginning to make the soil the best it can be.
