    so the woodchip is keeping the clay moist and it will dig easy. give it another two years and the woodchip will have completed carbon cycle back into air and back to dry clay.
    before that happens, you want to grow some major cover crops.
    digging and digging soil just makes it worse.

    How long did it take until you had a medium that you could actually plant in? I'm guessing two years? Good 4 u!!!

    Wood chips eat up the nitrogen, you need bark mulch and some other stuff

    Rake your chip/topsoil into rows, cut trenches in between, add logs, branches etc and cover them with the chip/topsoil. Then you can sell your tractor and forget watering most of the time ! Do this "on contour" or across the slope of the ground.
    'You can grow as much corn on a crooked row as you can a straight one !" Jerry Clower said that's what Uncle Versy told the smartmouth guy from the City !

    You can trap runoff water this way so that most of the rainwater stays in your garden.

    You can use many different plants that have deep roots that will bring nutrients to the surface. Look into Comfrey and Daikon radish for starters. A lot of "weeds" will do the same thing. I add leaves and wood chips as much as possible, anything organic.

    can I ask one question? if we got heavy rain like 80 or even 100 inches of rain annually… will this method still work? How many inches of rain you got ?

    I have a low spot in my property that I am going to layer wood chips leaves and sand to build it up. Along with adding manure to prduce another garden spot.

    Don't mix it. Never till again.

    Do Mycorrhizal fungi not need a living plant host to survive? So if you till soil because it has unwanted plant growth on it, you kill the plants and so also kill the fungi. If you do not till and you just add matter on top of the soil for the sake of decomposition to improve the soil, does this also not kill the existing plants – and therefore also the fungi? So then what's with this "no till".

    Wow, tilling totally defeats the purpose

    God is good. I am so thrilled to see that beautiful soil; I'm so happy for you. That clay is chock full of minerals, too. You're going to have some nutrient dense food coming out of those gardens.

    I got so sad when I saw you till that soil :-(. 4 years of great soil building fungi have been destroyed in an instant.. so sad. Please don't till anymore it's not just the wood chips to make great soil. wood chips provide the covering and home that the mycorrhizal fungi need in order to build great rich soil. best of luck to future soil building projects.

    Be careful with multiple vines. can get cross pollination.

    Our woodchips were in a pile way over my head, alongside the spot where the garden was going to be. I double dug 4 rows over 4 weeks (yes, it took me that long). Planted it, then sprinkled it with woodchips as soon as the plants were tall enough. Every year I add 4 more rows, and another layer of woodchips over the entire garden. Every year the plants are bigger and better, and the soil is easier and easier to work. Yes, it takes time, but it's worth it. Eventually, I won't have to dig any more, just add another layer of chips.

    Good start. Stop tilling. Ripping is less damaging but a broad fork will become your best friend.
