For years we have had gardens that were always rather flat. The rows were only slightly raised and if so it was done by and. this year we purchased for a nominal cost a implement that includes a row hiller to rais rows, four cultivators to keep the rows clean and a sweep plow we have used to dig a trench for the garden’s irrigation lines.
Jace, our college intern, looks over the row he has just made. The rows on the right were made without the hiller and are partially mulched in pine straw.
