    Which again goes back to putting a big old OM ring or bed in. Shorter and long term goals.

    Adding some understory plants to the new bed may introduce some other mycorrhizae which may may improve soil aggregation due to increased glomalin in the soil too. Divisions or B&B may be better as they'll have soil not soilless media and potentailly more fungal associations.

    I always thought alfalfa might make a good understory plant... soybeans, maybe....

    Then I'd have a good reason to get a cow.

    Yeah, who wants to deal with a stepladder and penis extensions, anyway?

    Daikon radishes? Break up soil, understory plant, return nutrients and increase pore space etc. Wouldn't be extremely deep but it could help
