I have a Troybilt Junior tiller, a high wheel cultivator.....and the old fashion way...pulling whats left by hand.
Ok, same method here. Hit what I can with Brinly cultivator. Hit in between the plants with a hand cultivator. Pull out the tiller if it gets crazy.

Several years ago, I had a nice crop of lettuce and used Preen to keep weeds out between the rows. After the first crop went to seed, I cultivated the area and planted it again with new seeds. NOTHING came up and after 3 different tries, gave up until the following year. Rabbits and groundhogs finished the crop the next couple of years.

Gave up and purchased a head of lettuce from grocery store plus a box of 12 gauge 3" magnum #4 shot from gun shop.

Final seed planting for indoor starting done this morning (hopefully). Watermelon, pumpkin, cantaloupe, zucchini, and cucumber. Replanted what didn’t come up yet, or we accidentally killed:bash:

Had some beautiful weather here yesterday. Hoping the cold is finally over with. Got a chance to get out of the house and do some yard work. Gave the garden a second deeper till. Going to start some tomatoes from seeds in the greenhouse today.
Also pulled some rocks out of the woods with the truck. They were a little too big for the 140 to pull. Going to use them for landscaping around the house.

Partly cloudy forecast tuned out to be a beautiful day. Final till and planted 20 russets, 30 garlic, and 20 white onions.

Besides the cabbage, the rest of the plants are coming up well in the grow room. Cabbage is doing great in the green house.

Tiger ilies like to take over garden beds. This afternoon I cleaned most of the lilies out of the with iris, surprise lilies, and rudebeckia (black eyed susan). Still need to clean out the other bed with jonquils, lambs ear, and hyacinths. There were tulips in this bed but the tiger lilies pushed them out. Thinking about getting rid of the japanese iris under the cast iron kettle also. Need to figure out what to replace them with. Mums are going around the mailbox again.

Out in the garden the onions and potatoes are starting to poke up. Garlic is looking good.

Jealous mine are doing so-so in my library room, aka the small bedroom that gets all the sun. Have wanted to goto the garden center but with pandemic I really did not want to go and wait outside today in the rain. My perennials are doing great but would like to get some more in the ground this year to finish off my garden. Vegi's well here in North East we still have not had temps stable enough to plant.

I had to cover my tomatoes and pepper plants up on Friday night here in West Kentucky. We had a low of 35 degrees on Saturday morning with a frost. I hope this is the last cold spell of this year. Kind of odd we’ve already been out on the lake on our tritoon last weekend when we had highs in the mid 80s. Water temperatures are way to cold for me. The kids got in it. I think the water was 65 degrees. Brrr.

Mowed and fertilized the front half of my lot in town today. Second mowing. Need to bring my sprayer in from rural property to spray for creeping charlie and dandelions.

Tomorrow I hope to get the back yard mowed and fertilized. First mowing. May need sheep.
