You can till, that is turn over the soil, with a hoe or a spade.
By hand: You can till, that is turn over the soil, with a hoe or a spade.
Usually this work is done with a hoe (daba).
The hoe should be heavy enough to cut into the soil even if it is rather hard.
You can also do the work with a spade.
With these tools you can turn over the soil and bury organic matter.
But this work is slow and tiring.
