Hi, Larry and welcome to the forum. You can have as large a garden as you can get on your property right on top of your clay and gravel.

Here in SFG World, we make our own dirt, put it in raised beds right on top of whatever soil we were blessed/cursed with.

Strongly suggest you get a copy of Mel Bartholomew's book, All New Square Foot Gardening. It's available in bookstores, the Big Box Stores, on the SFG Foundation site and on Amazon.com. The book lays everything out for you, start to finish, and you can ask all the specific questions you want right here on the forum.
