Harrowing the Garden with an Ox --- Day 1

May 8, 2011

We enlarged the garden this year. After Scout the Ox and I hauled in some topsoil to fill low spots, and I roto-tilled what was previously lawn, Scout came in handy to do the harrowing. Harrowing levels the seed bed, breaks up the soil, and helps kill weeds. This Spring harrowing had the added bonus of drying and warming the soil; it was very wet and looking like we wouldn't get our early crops planted. The frost came out late and the ground was much too soft for the garden tractor.

What a good boy! Thank you for sharing this. brianzpartner
