Double digging Double digging is a type of tillage, done by hand. The purpose is to loosen the soil so that water and roots can penetrate deeply. Equipment needed is a shovel, sturdy fork, board, marking string or tape, stakes and tape measure. The other vital component is strength and energy!
Dig another trench, filling in the first with soil from the second trench
Use the fork to loosen the soil in the second trench
Double digging Continue to dig trenches, filling in the previous ones, until the whole bed is dug. Use the soil from the first trench to fill in the last trench dug. This may take a while, depending on how hard your soil is and how many people are working. This bed is going to take a while, since the clay is really hard.
