Gardeners Chat / Jim and Dianna's Garden - 2019
« Last post by Jim on Mar 20, 2019, 01:18:39 PM »
Thought I would start this topic as I plan on having a bigger garden this year.  Had so many things going on last year that I didn't have the time.  I'm making time this year.

Dianna traded a rarely used box blade for a 5' disc harrow a year or so ago and I got a chance to use it last week.  I normally use a tiller to get the ground ready but sold the old worn out Hinimoto tiller with the Yanmar tractor.  If this disc harrow works I may be able to get by without buying another tiller for the tractor.

Anyway one night last week I put the disc on and ran it through the garden spot several times.



This is what it looked like after several passes.



I ran the disc back over it again on Sunday afternoon and it looked better.  Still not sure if I will have to get a new tiller in order to use my planter.  I also have one more spot to get ready for my corn patch.  I'll add that once I get it done.

I hope to have the garden planted sometime around the second week in April.

Turned the heat back on here too.  Loving the cool days though for working outside.
