How about some photos of your cultivating and planting equipment?

I explained that in another post. At least I attempted to explain.
Basically, that's just what I've always done. And I started that width
to accommodate tomatoes. I generally grow two lines of things like
beans, peas, broccoli per bed. On spinach, I try to put down four
lines, but they rarely get well spaced. I use two PlanetJrs 9" apart
on a tool bar.
OH! That Dale Philips disk is now mostly used to disk between
blackberry rows. I bought it mainly to smooth up root plowed ground; I
think my "clean up new ground" days are about over.
