Hello, i'm looking to move my moms garden to a sunnier spot. We live in north west new jersey, and the soil is full of rocks of all sizes. The site i'm preparing will take another month so this is a future garden for next year.
My question is...
is the dark earthy soil beneath the leaves in the dense woods good to fill the raised bed with? (it is very dark black with roots and years of decomposed leaves and dead branches making up its composition)
I am assuming it is very acidic
?, but not heavy or clay like.
Will this type of soil work along with peat moss and manure that will be added next spring
