So I want to grow outdoors in Washington State

Your situation sounds very much like mine. It's my frist grow actually, and it's outdoors. Some advice would be make it organic, and really watch for slugs'n'shit. Also, the best advice I've heard besides having the right mix of soil, is to use Mineral Water. It's direct CO2 to the roots!

Living in the Federal Way area and starting my first outdoor garden this May. Ive been trying prep my site but this spring weather has made it difficult to stay dry. Getting to my location has been a bithc too. I am very curious as to how other crops in this area have faired, as well as what the finished product looks like.

Both times I dug out some large patches about a foot and a half deep. Filled it with a mix of potting soil, a little compost, a little peat moss, and some worm castings. The soil in most of the puget sound area has a lot of clay consistency so the peat moss makes the dirt a little loamier for plants. The patches did well with staying moist and I only had to water them a few times. For watering, I took some water jugs, drilled some holes and plugged drip hoses to them so they would slowly water during the evening. We got a few hundred grams each time. Don't know if I'm gunna risk it this year. I got a spot but I'm afraid my neighbors would see it.
