I have no shortage in compost here, ~30 ducks poop a lot! And yet even after adding wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow of compost the soil is still a mess!Compost those weeds. Compost will hold water in your soil and improve the flavour of next year's cucumbers. If you can grow green manure crops over winter, such as rye, tic beans or lupins where you live, that will also help to improve your soil. Tell us more about your garden.
