Hello Eric,

I would start by mixing in a descent top soil into the area, and then add a generous layer of compost. The compost will help hold moisture, and break down further to feed your plants. If you plan to garden in this area annually, I would add a layer of mulch or compost yearly.

As for a fertilizer for tomatoes, I have two suggestions. The first is Neptune’s Fish and Seaweed, which is an organically derived fertilizer. The second, is a two part fertilizer series called Buddha Grow and Buddha Bloom. The former is used up until the plant begins to flower, then switched to the bloom.

Good Luck!
