I did that last week. Yesterday and today I'm strip tilling with a rototiller. That thing is painfully slow. Probably plant next week.

If you wait a few days after spraying, the roundup will will kill whatever it's going to kill regardless of what you do. Mine's been sprayed a week and the weeds have lost their vibrancy and are looking a little pale.

I'm getting my rows ready now so the rain we're supposed to be getting the next couple of days will settle the soil and give better traction when I plant it next week with a push planter. Also, good chance I'll get a flush of weeds sprouting within a week or ten days and I'll probably be able to hit them with roundup after I plant the garden but before the plants sprout.

I'd pick a bunch of those mustard greens and stir fry them in some bacon grease fo sho.

I finished my roto tilling yesterday morning, about three fourths of it anyway which is all I want at this time. Got 22 rows about 200 ft long. Had a good rain on it yesterday so next week when I plant with the push planter should get some good traction.

The tiller wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't so slow. The engine rpms won't go much above idle speed. You know that bar you have to keep held down with your hand to keep it in forward gear and the tines rotating? I zip tied that to the handle bars so I didn't have to keep a death grip on it all the time. You just have to give a nudge left or right almost constantly to keep it going in the right direction. Also have to lift up on the back end pretty regularly to keep it from spinning down. Pure drudgery using that thing.

Im sure but that's why I love my cub its perfect for the garden I have a front time tiller and use it only when I have too that thing you have a handle but you cant zip tie it cause that thing bounces so much you need to disengage often to keep it under control. I have invented new curse words while using it. If you hit a rock oh boy you got something on your hands then.

LOL, I used to haver one of those front tine tillers. It was like a bucking bronco. Much less boring than the rear tine model.

So far got some potatoes, onions, beets, carrots, peas, lettuce and several kinds of greens coming up. Been eating asparagus and lettuce ( well actually I haven't eaten but one leaf of lettuce just to say I did but others in the family have ). Saturday, I planted 2 rows of white half runner beans, and some Ambrosia sweet corn. Hoping to get some Roma beans and some more corn planted later this week or next.

half runners are a pain in the butt sometimes .. I think blue lakes are a lil better on snapping than those lil half runners I planted some cause family likes them better than blue lakes. I planted carrots doubt they grow but I planted them.
