Default Traditional garden w Clay

I had many gardens of good size, (40x50 or 2000 sq.ft), where I just turned clay soils w a roto tiller. I did add in on bale of peat moss and a bag of gypsum. Tilling made it a "raised bed". The veggies for fertilized w 3-1-2 fertilizer that was also used for the yard grass next to it.

It's not much different than what was described in the WWI and WWII Victory Gardens.

Wonderful results.

I may do a test of this again this year.
