I'm leaving Wednesday to go north to do some more tilling for four days. I'm beginning to woder if tilling the soil is the best way to go. It's a lot of work with my little Honda tiller.
I've found little information on the planting part of the process. The man I'm working with has suggested tilling and he has had success so that is what I am doing. When planting time comes I hope to try several different planting methods. ]
This may seem silly but I may buy some of these:
If the cleats were cut to the appropriate 1/2 inch depth it might work.
A person could follow behind me and plant the seed and cover them.
I do realize that the seeds need a bit of mulch/covering. Will the fall leaf drop be an adequate covering?
I've read that a layer of straw doesn't work well, but I've seen pictures of a famer online who uses it with success. Hardings? I don't remember.
I'm going to do a lot of experimenting and see what works best for me.
