Kind of like using a mixer in the kitchen for making a cake. Round and round it goes, churning and mixing and offering up a sweet, soft layer to plant.
I've read pros and cons about tilling and have tried very hard NOT to till. But we end up doing it each Spring anyway.
It's just easier.
Imagine trying to go out and stick a bunch of bean seeds in your lawn. If we didn't till our inground beds that's what we'd have.
Raised beds are best, I guess. I manage to keep our raised beds fairly weed free with little effort. But I've found that some summer plants just grow better in the ground.
So the battle continues each year.
We'll be heading out later today to plant...Err frost our layer cake.
Have a great weekend Ya'll!
