Mulching after rain - compacting soil?
We've had continual showers for the last week and are forecast for the same for the next week. There are a couple of beds that I had intended to mulch but haven't got around to. I remember reading that you shouldn't walk on beds that are too damp, as it compacts the soil. But you are meant to mulch when the soil is damp. What should I do? One of the beds is really big, so I'd have to tramp around on it a lot to mulch it. The subsoil is clay but the top soil is not too heavy.
