I don’t t have any clay but I have very rocky hard soil. The idea that daikon radish can help in this is laughable. The guy in the picture holding a 2 foot radish does not have a compaction problem.

I have seen good results from very hard work thrashing the ground with a pick and mattock.

I got great results from where an excavator moved a lot of material (even the spots that were driven over after being dug up were 1000x better).

I’m thinking of making a 2-tined broad fork and giving that a try. I don’t think I can get a 4-tine or 3-tine in the ground even with my 250 lbs. on it.

I say hire someone with an ungodly huge excavator to till your soil to a depth of 3 feet. Frankly it doesn’t matter if it causes you to lose some “top soil” or disturbs the microbial life of the soil. You can’t grow food on a marble counter top.

Can anyone give advice on how to get some P. nigra growing? I bought a bunch of seeds on Etsy and did not get germination from any of them. Any ideas on where to get the seeds?

I don't have pictures anymore of it but I too have carried a deer from of the woods on my handle bars. There were a couple steep parts where I just pushed it but but mostly rode the whole way.

Also, I use to bring my 2 garbage cans to the dump on a big trailer.I
