Yes, this area is a big limestone rock. Here at SacBe we mostly use raised beds with rock walls, since there is no rock shortage. Our compost is made in big piles of organic debris, kitchen and garden waste, manure, whatever we can find. We are rural, so we don't need designer compost bins. I just plant a little of everything and see what survives. My two big lessons are: plant in sunny areas, and cover with nets to keep the birds from eating everything. I have been reading a lot about container gardening and plan to start on that this year. Eventually I will post results if I make some progress with that.
