I said I wasn't going to till the patches this year. But I decided to do the edges of the patches where the soil is heaviest. Moment I came further in it was obvious my original decision was right and there was absolutely no need to do the rest as it would do more harm than good. Feels amazing how in three years I've managed to change this from virgin field clay to a garden loam that doesn't even need spring tilling. No heavy machinery used, just lashings of compost, a spade and winter frost is all you need.
