Clay soil - how do I fix it? Or do I have to?
I moved to VA, and the soil in the garden is like wet clay. Really, It was sticking to my shovel like wet muck. Will anything really grow in it? I never experience clay soil before. Is it any good for growing? Right now I try to mix into it wood mulch, composted cow manure and top soil bags into it, thinking to increase organics into it. But should I really bother or just lay it on top of this clay soil. Anyone with experience with clay soil that can give me some tips on using it. Its my flower bed and also the vegetable garden I'm trying to set up.
