Cultivating , hillin, and usein one of those things ya have to use by hand between the potatoes, a hoe. Finally the potatoes are up and things are starting to warm up and always a bit of rain coming down. Looks like another good crop for this year. Was very slow to start, because of cold and wet weather. Cultivator I got, thanks Jim, is working very well and is my new favorite tool. No tiller put on or used this year. Cultivator has done all the work, to get the ground ready.

Get yourself one of these. I just did about 100 feet of potatoes in roughly 20 minutes. Ours looks very similar to the photo, Takes very little effort and you can use it in both the push and pull strokes. You can use it deep or shallow so it's easy to use around the spuds. 

My wife picked this thing up after talking to one of her friends.

I picked up one of those garden hoes last year and was amazed at how well they work.  I weed between the rows really easy/fast, highly recommend them!
