Well the winter digging started today and I started with the area that I want to improve the most. Today I dug a lot of compost into the pumpkin patch. I have the grow a bigger pumpkin than Chris next summer. The area will have a lot more light now that the hedge is cut down. Over the past four winters I have put more and more compost into this area and today I saw the results from this, there is a lot less clay and a lot of good dark soil.
