new raised Vegetable garden

Zone 01201 Zone 5 | Anonymous added on September 5, 2019 | Answered

My vegetable garden did not produce this year. I live in Western Massachusetts where we received blazing sun & humidity, cool days, days of heavy rain then repeated this same cycle several times throughout the summer. I fed, watered, & applied pest controls to no avail. My cherry tomatoes are the only thing giving me fruit. Everything else is a disaster. I know it is too late now but how can I prepare my beds for next year? Any ideas & help would be appreciated. Ellen

Prepare the soil well with real compost if you can get it, or make it, or use a potting soil mixed with your native soil. Here are some scenarios and solutions:
