This is the main portion of the garden, we also have some radishes and just a bunch of flowers in the other spot. First, we plowed it up this spring with our new plow and the 1600 saw a bit of action. The GT235 came through with the spin spreader for fertilizer and then we harrowed, after the harrwoing was done it was followed by a session of rock-picking and then row-making, planting. We just got the first and probably only cultivating time done just a few days ago. Strawberries and onions are all done, we plowed up the old berry patch for we no longer needed it and planted grass.
Here's some youtube videos as well.

Very nice garden, and the 2520 did a great job with the pull type plow.

In the first photo of the rear of the tractor and tool bar, were you setting rows?

Thanks for Sharing !! :thumbs:

Thanks guys, I'll try and keep you guys updated. Just got rained on last night, but it wasn't even a tenth. Only enough to put some drops in the ground.

Went on vacation and found that we got another inch of rain so that makes a total of 2 inches in July. The crops have really shot up and we may have some sweet corn very soon. The peppers are coming off as well. Now if it'll stop raining so I can cultivate one last time.

Thats tough when that happens. I lost some corn to falling over as well. Nice looking garden, and you've got some nice looking toys too!
