Have you ever tried no dig gardening? Highly recommendedThe southern plot here is a bit more shaded than the northern one, even more so in the winter half of the year, so it is colder and wetter. The other plot has had the winter shreddings stirred in regularly, but the southern one has been too claggy.
So, yesterday, I forked it over, to break it up and let some air in. This I managed to do as potential snow showers went past on both sides, but I got away with it.

I planned to leave it for a few days, then run the tiller through, but there was a long sharp frost here overnight and it looked doable this afternoon - so, the tiller was applied and minced it up nicely. From here on, I can apply shreddings and clippings to both plots.

The idea was to be planting some stuff this year, but I never got around to doing anything and I've been housebound with plague a lot of the time. Next year, maybe, or there might be some salad stuff yet.
This is the first time I've noticed that they're not the same length...
