Dense Clay Like Soil
My soil is very heavy and dense. I cannot see clay but it is very clay like. Last year was my first time gardening (vegetable) this area. In the fall I covered the garden with hay, straw, and the leaves that were for compost. Should I till all of it into the gardnen soil. If not, how do I fix this soil?

Tilling does help and is preferable. If you can't till, you can use lasagna methods for amending the soil.
