Trying to make Loam-like soil
Hello, I am new to gardening and I'm trying to grow a multitude of vegetables and fruits this year.
Two in particular are Watermelon and Cantaloupe. I have looked all over the internet for the best soil to grow the melons in and all sites say that "Loamy" soil is the best.
Now i know that loam is a mix of clay silt and sand, but I was just wondering if i just added sand to my topsoil i lay down would this do the trick?
And if it wouldn't where could i go about getting clay or silt? and how much would i add of everything?
Sooo many questions but I'm new to this and Haven't been able to find a good answer yet. Any help will be appreciated.
