What does Tilth mean to you?

There is an official general definition and an even more general description if you look it up... but if you think about improving Tilth, or you run soil through your fingers, does tilth feel good??? Can you see or feel tilth, or is it something that has to be tested, back at the Lab???

Let's try it another way... will this Sumagreen or any other fertilizer work equally as well in poor tilth soil??? What does tilth mean to the plants that live there???

If we're looking at fertilizer comparisons on one soil and comparing them w/out regard to the quality of that soil, is it a valid comparison???

I'm beginning to believe that professionals believe that a greasy play-doh type soil is just as capable of utilizing Sumagreen as the same topsoil that is properly managed...
