Compost ok to plant in?
I defined a garden area last fall, and tried to layer some mulch, newspaper and cardboard, with the intention of doing "lasagna gardening". But the garden area does NOT look promising after the winter. I would like to define the beds with some wood planks, and fill it in to make little raised beds.
I'm in the 'burbs, and don't have access to a vehicle for hauling, so I will have to order the material that will be filling these beds. Can I use "finished compost" to fill in the beds, or should I order topsoil?
This will be for vegetables, and this is my first garden ever. I'm completely new to this and lost. Also likely to kill everything I get my hands on, but that's another story :)
