I bought a tractor. Now what?

behaviorkelton(7-ish)February 9, 2013

I bought a new Kubota tractor to start clearing my understory, ridding myself of trashy trees, and replacing them with young, more desirable trees.... and hauling mulch, etc.

Now, I think I'd like to use the tractor in traditional ways, too. That is, plowing / tilling a field and growing a crop of some sort.

I have only a vague idea of why a person would blow or till. In other words, I don't know how to farm a field!

Is there a beginner's guide to creating a farm able plot? (including, how to remove roots and other obstructions as it is prepped?)

I am not the person to be responding to this, BUT, if you spend any amount of time in a Books a Million, there are several books on homesteading that can tell you exactly what you're asking and more. I just don't know the answer! Sorry.

Not sure if this will help, but hopefully will at least give you a direction to go.

Drive it to my house in Goodlettsville and I'll be happy to give you a day-long lesson! :-)
