Breaking a garden...

Recommended Posts

How is everyone? I have myself a standard one bottom mold board breaking plow that belonged to my grandfather, as well as his old Kubota. I finally gotten around to where I have time for a garden, but I can't for the life of me remember how to break one. We always bedded ours before-- plowing one furrow down the middle, then turning around and plowing another one so that your dirt is thrown together in the center-- and you end up with to furrows on the sides. This sounds easy enough, but for some reason, it's giving me mental fits. Any pointers?

You may have to adjust the depth on your plow for the first down and back run because the right wheel will not have a furrow to run in and will be higher than when plowing the rest of the field. Find the middle of the garden and set your sights on an object in the middle of the other end of the garden and drive towards it to get your first furrow straight. When you plow it next year,start in the outside furrows from this year and throw the dirt to the outside and you will have one furrow down the middle of the garden when your done. Hope this helps you.

This supplement to the walking tractors owner's manual might be helpful. It describes laying out your garden and shows a diagram of how to plow it... http://www.simpletractors.com/Walkers/supplement.htm
