Oh dear, now I sound more virtuous than I am! It's about three quarters of an acre but in those years I have also had to give time to family, employment, other interests as well and battle with shortages of energy, strength and money, so I'm sure I haven't done as much as it sounded. What I should have said is that really poor soil cannot be improved in one or two big goes, no matter how much you add or dig. It needs years of love and attention, mulching, mixing, feeding and tending. No dig may be fine for light loam, especially if you mulch regularly, but I don't believe you can get much out of clay that way.
