Weather in Richmond has been fairly dry and mild. Perfect for the 1st step of soil preparation....subsoiling.
Subsoiling is performed by dragging long tynes through the soil to breakup the hard pan underneath the topsoil. Subsoiling requires a lot of power so that's why you only see 1 blade on my homemade setup. I drive back and forth in 1 ft rows. Local farmers feel that this 1st step is 1 of the most important steps in preparing the soil for any crop.
