If I add manure to the veg patch now, won't the goodness get washed away y the time its needed in rainy Argyll?



if you are going to plant greens ,you are too late leave it untill the back end ,if you are talking potatoes thench put manure in the bottom with a little soil over it so that it dose not tuch the sets, carrots and other roots unles you want forked or mishapes do not put manure in ,so with the exception of patatoes all ways dig it in at the backend of the year so that worms and others can turn it in to usefull food for your crops,by the spring and early summer.
