Diggin' in the Dirt

This afternoon, I added a bag of claybreaker and 3 bags of organic topsoil to half the vegetable patch.

What a job it is busting up that packed clay with shovel, pitchfork or hoe!  But I am very pleased with the results and am looking forward to digging out grass and expanding the other half a few feet before I add the soil amendments to that section.  I'm expanding only the left side outwards due to drainage issues - to the right, water piles up a bit when we get a hard storm; and also to take advantage of longer afternoon sunlight exposure occurring in that direction.
