Ive got a 48 Cub and ive had an old spring tooth cultivator that is about 4ft wide or so. It had a homemade 3 point put on it. I took that off and rigged it to the drawbar of the cub. You can pull out and enterchange teeth, and so I leave a slot open right below the platform on the right sid and cultivate everything with it. I just got done plowing the garden bout 2 weeks ago. Ill disk it come Feb or so. I usta use the corn planter to mark the rows,and I found out when was the best time to plant corn by doing that as I still had corn in the hopper. I would only make rows enough for what I was that day planting. Anyway. Now, Im going to lay parachute cord out and hoe a trench to plant in, On soma the stuff thats to be barly in the dirt, I might use only the hoe handle instead. I last year, left the cord lay in the row and began immeaiat;ly cultivating around it. I didnt see any great advantage in yield, but it kept the weeds down longer. I planted my tomatoes ibn cages thereabouts 10ft apart I then could plow -straight 1 up and down + cross ways or X that way. Really kept the weeds down, but used up alot of ground. Ive got a small tiller, but dont use it anymore in my big garden, but got to use it in my 18 X 30 fenced garden.
