I read your other thread and am curious as to the sand you have.

Is it coarse or more like sandy loam.
One thing you will have going for you is it will hold moisture and not crack.
The cotton seed meal sounds good and liberal doses of fertilizer.
I have grown some killer tomato plants in this stuff.
Worth, the sand is very fine mostly. So you can call it sandy loam. There is some hums in it too. The area that I converted was grass and it and the surrounding grass was doing fine. here is a picture

There are several kinds of grass. One is Bermuda type grass. I took all of its roos out but buried other varieties.
