Gardening - Update

I had to put in raised beds for my garden (vegetables). It's difficult to grow anything in the high clay content soil I have. In addition the soil contains a bunch of potato sized rocks.

If you find a solution to the clay soil problem let me know. I have the same problem. What have you found grows well in the soil?

Thanks Sexyfitwoman for you suggestion. I'll attempt to amend my clay soil with manure. I have raised beds that I filled in with topsoil. This also works. I have good soil that doesn't get trampled and compacted.

Peaches, I can't seem to get anything to grow in clay soil. I suggest a raised garden bed. I use raised beds. This way you will not have to fuss with your clay soil.
