Hi BobFlannigon, a few of the guys on our sit have their own rotivators, I never use one, even when I first took over my pot and it resembled Esther3's!! We have a bad case of horsetail on our site and rotivating would make it worse.
Esther, its worth taking the time planning your site first, then strimming all the grass down and covering it with tarpaulin or cardboard. You can then take your time digging and making paths/raised beds etc. We have mini ponds on our plots (washing up bowls set in the ground) home enough for a few slug munching frogs!
Thanks to Doris, I have a broken green house, the glass flew all round the garden in dangerous shards!My polytunnel got ripped but that was easy to stick with tape
Had a good 4 hour session on Wednesday, weeding, digging and re lined and straightened all my paths, looks a lot neater, even got to mow them too! Can wait to start sowing, too cold here yet.
