Do any of you vegetable gardeners in Florida use a broadfork to loosen soil in preparation for planting?
Hey Jerry.....You mean a two-handled job ?....You got one ?
We need "pictures".....YouGottaCamera ? ;-)
My in-city soil is so full of neighboring tree roots..... breaking soil is a chore.....I use containers for a good part of my garden
How's-the-Orlando ? doug
Yes -- the two-handled job but no I don't have one. I'm trying to decide if I want to add one to my Christmas wish list. It looks like an excellent no-till way to prepare beds for planting but I'm wondering if a good garden fork might work just as well in our sandy Florida soil.
The Orlando is looking great and still in its container -- putting on some nice blooms.
Just a regular garden fork here - & it works fine for my small space.
Thanks for the feedback carolb. I'm hoping someone is using or has used a broadfork in our Florida sand and can help me decide if I want to try one. A broadfork probably works well in compacted and/or soil with small rocks but it might be overkill in our sand. Jerry
