Patience is the key. As you said it takes few growing cycles to understand your microclimate which means a few years, it becomes really frustrating sometimes when you don't get any results of all the hard work. I have been trying since three years and still not succeeded in growing most of the vegetables in good quantity. Spinach was easiest for me. But whatever be the result, the real pleasure is in the process.So keep trying and enjoy gardening, don't worry about the result :)

Use a spade or fork to dig the soil to a depth of 12 to 14 inches, incorporating a 3- to 4-inch layer of compost or rotted manure, along with any amendments recommended in your soil test. Rake the soil until is level. Loose, well-aerated soil allows water and oxygen to reach the plants' roots quickly.
