RE: small tiller- great day today!

That sounds great. I may have to look at one of those - right now
nothing gets rototilled unless my husband does it, because I can't start
ours. And if I get it moving I have to keep it moving fast or it digs
itself right into the ground and I can't budge it.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] small tiller- great day today!

OK- so on Vera's esteemed recommendation I went to Sears and bought the
4-cycle engine Craftsman mini-tiller and I LOVE IT!  Whatever ninny
wrote the review that they bent the tines must be nuts-  I strongly
suspect that they didn't realize several of the tines are bend inward
(on purpose) to help stir up the dirt.  I gave this thing a work out
today.  I tilled my veggie garden in about 20 minutes- amazing time and
back saver.  I tilled in dead leaves, greensand, compost, fertilizer and
bat guano.  It looks marvelous.  Then I easily dug a trench near the
wall and actually installed a true irrigation system.  I extended one of
the sprinker lines and but in about 5 multi-port mini-drip heads.  It
was so easy to put in the PVC pipe since I'd already roto-tilled!  Today
I actually got MORE done than I expected (this almost never happens to
me!).  I put in minidrip lines and sprayers, fixed up the other area
near the house replacing/fixing all the minidrips there too (the stucco
guys simply aren't too careful to set up scaffolding around drip
emitters).  So- that side of the garden/house is now all fixed up!  I
bought some seeds today and have others from Peaceful Valley that i
intend to plant in windowsill seed trays tomorrow.
I also cut, WOWed and fertilized the front lawn (and also the veggie
garden that I tilled), hung the bee house back up on the eave, and moved
a really big pot (that I got at OSH on sale yesterday) to the back
patio.  Now that the stucco is all finished (finally!! and it looks
great) I moved pots, and furniture up next to the house again.
I have the distinct impression that I may be immobile tomorrow- today
was the official first day of spring for me and I worked outside from
8-6.  It was great!
