We tilled too soon (soil was still too wet) and now have hard-as-a-rock clumps. Any way to fix this?

I had done the same thing one year. Just let it completely dry again and chop it good with a hoe. Don't put fertilizer until after though because it will take longer to dry out. You might have to just get in there with your hands to break it up. It'll be a pain no matter what you do but worth it down the line, because if left in clumps, roots are not protected and plants won't produce very well.
It is simple to correct. When the ground is completely dry till again. Be careful when you plant your crops and then water them. If the soil is hard now it will dry hard around the stem when soiled is wet after planting. You can hoe around them then and till between the rows. God Bless and Good Luck.
