We broke ground on the neighbor's backyard! It may seem a bit crazy to us but we figure why not go all in on urban farming? Here is a quick video of our process of rototilling the ground.
The research I have done says, "No-till is the best method" of breaking ground. Truthfully, I would love to start that way. The issue was the ground was so hard and thick with grass and yes, weeds. The idea was to put all this under and block and kill the weeds as they come up. We may have caused a bigger issue down the road but after all, this is a somewhat experiment project.
