I could just cry
I layed down cardboard and covered it with rotten horse manure 4", A layer of shredded leaves, coffee grounds and hoped to have planting area by spring. When I dug in to the "clay mud" below I found the worse stickey grey clay you can immagine.
I can't afford raised beds or the soil to put in them. The good news is the top four inches is worm rich.
Any help would be appreciated. My tears are that I will have to grow my plant stash in pots again this year. I soooooo want to get my plants in the ground so that they can start their sleep, creep, leap cycle before I get too darn old to enjoy this. It took me 10 years to do my Garedens in Calif. Another 8 to do my gardens in Vancouver only to leave them both for the land of rock and clay.
Sorry for the rant. . . I'm sure some one can relate.
