Jammu& Kashmir, India
In a portion of my kitchen garden, the problem is the ancient pottery pieces of small and medium sizes mixed with the soil. In fact, the area seems to have been dumping site of the potters waste. The waste includes the red clay nodules, broken or rejected pottery pieces .The soil is highly porous due to these pebbles. What could be the remedy as the pebbles interfere during tilling? After heavy rains, the top of the soil is left with shinning shingle of the pebbles. It is not possible to separate the pebbles physically, only the bigger ones are taken out of the vegetable beds.
