We just put our first grade in – raised beds. We ordered top soil and filled our boxes and then tested it. It is depleted of everything. We have started a compost pile. It is extremely Alkaline. What would you recommend we use to try and get the soil able to grow this season? We used Dr. Earth on my son’s orange trees and loved it. So we trust you.

How exciting! Sounds like you have got some of the basics on their way. When it comes to most top soils in bulk, they lack nutrients and other essential organic matter. I suggest our Home Grown Planting Mix to top the beds if you are planting mostly veggies in them if you are planting More Flowers then Veggies than I would recommend our Mother Land Planting Mix to top the beds.  Also mix in some of our Home Grown Tomato & Veg Fertilizer! Your plants and soil will love it!
