I used this method

For 2 raised beds this year. Both are 4 x 10 and both are mostly planted and doing well already with my hoop house over them. I didn't follow the mels mix recipe exactly but where I cut back on the more expensive ingredients I added in compost. I found 4 sq ft bags of vermiculite at my local co-op for about $20. I'm going to be succession planting these beds for as long as possible to see how much they yeild compared to traditional garden beds.
