This is my first post to the forum, and I've only been gardening for a couple of years.

I've decided to use the double-dig method to prep my garden this year, but I'm curious when I should do it. I live in New Hampshire and this is the first weekend I can see most of my garden now that much of the snow has receded. We don't plant most of our veggies until Memorial Day, but the soil is already soft enough to work. Is it ever too early to till a garden?

Thanks!

Just don't dig when the soil is waterlogged. If you have any clay you end up with adobe bricks.
