In the fall, collect your neighbors' leaf bags from their trash. Dump a zillion bags of leaves on your garden in the fall. They'll begin rotting down. If you can get other things during the year, like grass clippings, pulled weeds (without seeds), etc., dump them on. Let any wood chips be on top. Plant in the underlying dirt, though, the first year. Once the additives become dirt, plant in those.

My space is at a premium in my 11' x 39' garden. I do this:
fence | 3' row | 1' path | 3' row | 1' path | 3' row | fence
with a 3' row across the two short ends, with a 1' cross path on each end and one cross path in the middle.
