You can contact either your local Troy dealer or the manufacturer of Troybult on the web for your tines.

Speaking of tilling, when is a good time to do that? I have never prepared the soil for gardening before, and just wanted to know when I could till the soil? Any thoughts, or insight? Thanks! :D

As long as it's not to wet, right now is a good time to get it going.

That's what I thought, but I also was thinking that it's too wet, we had so much snow this winter that's melted, plus the combination of the rain we've been having, it might be too wet. How can I tell if it is?

Sorry for the obvious, (maybe even stupid questions, but I am not sure really, since it's my first time gardening ever :oops: )

Thanks! :D

Not to worry, the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

The soil should crumble when you pick it up to make a ball. If it sticks it's still too wet. And if you have clay like soil you get concrete if you push it. Let it dry out and then till.

We're in the same boat you are right now, we've had continuous rain for the last 3 days. While we can certainly use the rain, I wish we could save some of this for July and August!! LOL

It's hard to be patient some times. I'm putter with the houseplants at this point! LOL

I did cut up some more seed taters to get them calused. I've not had good luck this year ordering seed taters online. sigh.......I did pick up some Kennebecs and Red pontiacs and those are under leaf. But I normally have those all planted and growing by March 17. Ah well, we'll see what happens.
