Workout today: I broadforked the meadow next to my pumpkin patch...just for fun ;) In fact, I did that on purpose, broadforked a 2 ft wide strip around the patch because I will grow corn around the pumpkin patch (wind protection) and want to convince the corn to grow some more roots toward the meadow rather than into the pumpkin patch. Will do some watering/fertilizing of the corn in May/June on that strip of grassland only, an additional attempt at convincing it to push the roots that way. Hint for the German growers interested in broadforks ("Bodenbelüftungsgabel"): This broadfork is a custom made piece by Oliver Langheim ("Kürbisolli").
