Oh. I guess I have another thought. You might want to think about biochar. Not in mass quantities, such as you'd need to affect drainage in heavy clay soil, but at least in quantity enough to broadcast in a crushed granular form, maybe incorporated into compost it has already been innoculating in. I am pretty sure it would greatly increase the speed of the soil remediation.
rings true. I am making so-so progress and it has been a good experiment, but if I had been more pragmatic and caused a large disruption instead of waiting for purely biological remediation I think I would be far ahead.
I believe that tilling is one of the best things that can be done to hard packed clay.
