I too have land enough to just do things in rows,and my next door neighbor has bought a disc and other good stuff. I have a good rear tine rototiller but that’s for maintenance, not the initial breaking up of the sod.
I just got the test results of the 6 soil samples I sent to the Univ. of Vermont Extension Service. I haven’t studied them in detail yet but across the board I am low on Phosphous, low to medium on Potassium, and range from Optimum to Excessive for Magnesium. I’ve got some soil remediation to do! I’m feeling kind of dumb for not having had the soil tested a couple years ago but better late than never. At least I’m still in a position to do something about it. I had been lulled by how rich it looks (even if full of stones)
