Sandy soil is the bane of my existence in my raised beds at the lake. I've had 50 (!) bags of black cow dumped in, but its still sandy on top (and I threw logs in the bottom of one bed but can't tell the difference). Clay soil is amendable, and it doesn't take much. My garden to the north is wonderful and growing a variety of vegetables, and the amended area is even better! Fill dirt that is clay is awful though!
