Allotment probably needs double digging where water is standing.
Ours has a thick layer of clay under it...
Someone brave dug a big hole and then tried digging through the clay.
He gave up. Needs a digger to have a go ... or drains putting in.

I got in 10 tons of sharp sand and dug it in. Took a long time to get
