This year we decided to change the type of soil improvement that we use. Instead of vegetal compost, we are using aged manure. We’ve had the impression that despite our better efforts to keep the soil not too compact, it keeps getting hard. That’s why we decided to use manure under the rows so that it will help keep the soil soft and loose.
