Hi, I am making plans for this spring even though there is lots of snow still on the ground. I have a question and thought that maybe some of you might have some experience to share. I need loosen the soil in the beds to remove the weeds and get it ready for planting. I saw in a catalog something called a broad fork and thought that might be just what I am needing. This soil does not get walked on, but it has been several years since it was turned over. Would this broad fork work? Also, how about a Mantis Tiller--you know, the little one? My husband says the tiller will not handle it. Opinions? Other ideas?
