Also started pitchforking the soil today. The pitch work will break up any compaction in and around the plant and will help with oxygen in the root zone I pitchfork every few weeks around the outside of the vine tip. I do not turn the soil over, I simply push the pitchfork down and gently "rock" the pitchfork back towards me, just enough to break any compaction.
