    Same deal here, clay and glacial till. The county compost program has been a godsend. I'm going to keep adding as much as I can as I know it probably won't last. The tractor always makes those same passes, so the beds are never compacted. I mulch the tire/walkways after the spring till.

    Thanks guys, my conversion from city kid who doesn't know where anything comes from is almost complete. Hopefully, our kids will be way up this learning curve before its time to decide what to do with their lives.

    The guy from my CSA recommended oats and peas for a cover crop. My 30sf bed really does not justify it, but it sounded interesting.
