the plot you plan to put thrm next year . lightly turn top few inches this back end. and leave alone till next year . walk all over it next spring and do not dig. the harder the better they like it.old gardeners tales tell of using a crowbar and planting. this years are u,s. you might use the tops in spring do,nt give up. wrinkly1
