  • What was I exposed to to start this? I happened to acquire a lightly used walk-behind tiller. Previously, I either tilled with the tractor or I used a hand-held tiller that wore my back out.

    The tiller has a power-train with forward and reverse gears and wheels. That should make the toughest thing about using it be pulling the cord to get the contraption going.

    I have been thinking of predominantly growing wellness herbs but there is plenty of room for some veggies so I might get crazy again. Fresh picked sweet corn is really hard to beat.

  • WoW! I did a few garden things in the warm weather. Kind of pointless now with this cold snap though but oh well.

    Umm walk behind tilling isn't exactly a walk in the park haha...stick to the tractor Steve!

  • I agree that walk behind is still work but what I am excited about is that I can do smaller things than the tractor yet larger than the hand-held.

    The hand-held has no support so I have to use my back muscles to help hold it. Ouch!

    Of course, it has been a long time since I operated a walk-behind soooo...:-)
