“ Awesome! I got there late and saw some amazing transformations. What I learned about the simple concept of digging....plants want fluffy dirt. If you are going to tuck them into the vegetable bed you need to fluff their pillow. The problem is many times we do the opposite and lay them in a rock hard surface. So now I know what to do. Put on the Beach Boys and surf the dirt. While you are doing that, get your shovel and tilling fork and enjoy the Rock-n-Roll! Grab a large enough board to properly distribute your weight across the board and reduce packing the dirt down. Start in sections from front to back and dig a traugh by pushing straight down and rocking it to loosen a shovel full, then loading the dirt in front. The shovel tends to pack the dirt down so then you grab the fork, plunge it down and rock and roll the dirt to get it good and fluffy. Toss compost over the top and fork it in. Keep moving the board back til the bed is done. Water plant and water. ”
