haha!!! Love it! Yeah, I grow great weeds! I had no idea that the Oregon coast had so much clay! But then, you do say 'valley side', so not so close to the coast. Willamette Valley??
As the movie tag line says -- "Welcome to the party pal!" My land here in Texas is clay pot territory. I have found that putting down wood chips helps. Especially summers so the clay does not fry in the baking sun. The trees appreciate that. But most of our gardening is raised beds out of sheer necessity.
