I'm keen to get some summer crops planted but fast running out of time
I have a field with heavy clay that I've cultivated previously successfully using the cultivator on my 2 wheel tractor. Unfortunately the gear rod is broken so I have to use a much flimsier cultivator with my garden tractor.
It's very hot and therefore dry right now so the soil is very hard. I know for tilling their must be a certain level of moisture in the soil but what about for cultivating? I just want to scratch the surface a bit so there is some loose dirt to plant into.
I'm planning on maybe wetting the field a little then the next day driving over it with the cultivator to very shallow depth. Then maybe doing a second pass a bit deeper. What do ya'll reckon?
