It was plenty wet, but I plowed the Salad garden tonight. Hope it dries without getting too cloddy? another plowing job for the middle buster.

JD, by the looks, I'd say the dirt will be fine.

I won't risk putting out plants till about the second week of May.  But the radishes, lettuce and spinach  could be in already. if it would dry up enough to till I might plant them Saturday.

I thought everyone was getting tired of seeing the Ford?? Besides it is a little muddy it was pulling the middle buster over a foot deep.without breaking a sweat or spinning a wheel.  Maybe I'll take some pictures with the tiller on it this weekend.

Looks like the soil turned over fine.  I think you did it at about the right time.

Yeah Jo took a day off today and she is repotting plants. They are getting too big for the trays.

Lots of times we plowed and it looked shiny brown because of the texture soil and moisture..  We needed to double disc and fit the fields to make it look anywhere close to what you have there!!  (It would still be clumped up until things dried out a bit..)  But the earlier you got the crops in the better price you'd get @ harvest! :dancingbanana:

This was taken Wednesday. I tried tilling it Saturday and it was still a little too wet and cloddy. I'll try again tonight.

That middle buster does a great job.  Thanks for the pictures.  I never get tired of seeing pictures.

Yes I am pleased enough with the job it does, for my purposes I don't think I will need a mouldboard plow.

I knocked off the peaks with the landscape rake I bought Saturday(picture in the implements section) so I had smoother going with the tiller.

I'll be tilling again this afternoon and will try to get pictures,
