After the cultivitors

Postby Jackman » Sat May 12, 2018 5:19 pm

When using a Cub to cultivate what do you do after the plants are too tall to cultivate?

I set my gardens up so the smaller plants are in the middle of the tractor and are cultivated by the inside of the cultivators and the taller ones are cultivated by the out side of the cultivators when I cultivate the row of smaller plants, if that makes sense, so all get cultivated.....Some of the larger landowners may have a better system....Dave :tractor:

My garden is about twice the size of yours. From a practical standpoint, that's hardly worth getting the cults set up for. Especially with that variety in size of plants. However, I do understand the desire to use that Cub, when possible. :D
Personally, I use the walk-behind rototiller and hoe from start to finish.

You answered your own question.

I like to use one of the several things called a "scuffle hoe".

I have two gardens both about 50 x 100...I use the Cub, A gravely walk behind I refurbished, a mantis titler and hoes , rakes and potato hooks...The contraption Shane mentioned looks interesting ...At some point you will need a little less seat time and a little more manual therapy... :lol: :lol: :lol: You can always hook a trailer behind the lo boy to take your tools to the garden... :lol: :lol: Good Luck with the growing season...Dave :tractor:

I'll check out Shane's idea too always good to have more tools :mrgreen: currently I use this http://www.gardenweasel.com/garden-weas ... en-weasel/ a garden weasel awesome tool to keep the eeds down and also for spot seeding the lawn :D , as for the garden Ive always had a small 20x20 troybilt horse garden while the tiller is an awesome tool even on a 20x20 I find my self out there too long trying to loose up the soil , the Loboy did in minutes what the tiller took an hour to do plus I added 20 more feet 8) I might add another 20 and have a long 20x60 garden which I think will be easier with the Cub going long as opposed to square , any wauy have fun with the cub and the garden :D :tractor:

A hoe.

Mostly though I sit back and enjoy the harvest. Things like sweet corn will shade enough to hold the weeds back until harvest. Then I cultivate that part of the garden with the disk.....

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.

I work with multiples of 50 feet because soaker hoses come in 50 foot lengths. My total garden space is 50x200, not necessarily all gardened each year. Rows run the long direction.
