i have a grow box in my greenhouse that is 32' long 2' wide 2' deep and has room on the surface for another 8 inches of soil.
It has never been that productive.
It does stay above freezing year round due to a lot of solar assisted water in a 800 gal tank .
I am currently harvesting a a variety of tomatoes.
I would like to add another 6-8 inches of good soil with the goal of growing a variety of vegetables.
What do you recommend for good bagged soil to add?

I have been happy with Fox Farm organic soils. Supposedly Ace Hardware sells it; I get mine at Sundance Gardens in Evergreen or any of the garden sellers in town. Be careful about buying a soil that has been sitting outside in the heat, it may have mold.

I would use a product called Biocomp.

Biocomp is a Compost with a proven track record of performance. A Class I quality compost, is a stabilized organic material that can be used with all plant types and in any type of soil. It enhances overall soil structure.

It is not sold by the bag- but by the cubic yard. It will cost much less than a bagged product. One supplier is APC Landscape Supply in Golden.
I buy it by the truckload and it supercharges my garden.
