The manure is less, you have to apply at least 2 inch thick layer on top of soil.. then you have to mix it with top 5-6 inches of soil... also add 20 gm Gypsum (or Plaster-of-Paris) per square foot of your soil and mix well...

gud work there.. i planted some winter veggies this season.. planning for summer veggies this time.. the first criteria for selection shall be your choice of vegetable ofcourse. But do consider the rarity and expensive factor to actually trade off your efforts..
