Yeah, several weeks ago we had almost daily rainfall and my garden was waterlogged. If we had 2-3 days of clear weather I'd check the soil but in my heart I knew it was still too wet to get the tiller in there.
Finally, after about 10 days of windy, warmer weather I got in there and just turned over the top 2-3 inches one day and went back in over the next couple days getting it tilled deeper.
I finally got to pull my rows and get things in the ground, a bit later than I usually do, but it's now pretty much all in with lots of stuff coming up that was direct sown and the things I transplanted are doing great.
Hang in there, your time will come.
