Strawberry and Cabbage time

Posted by Roots and Boots on 06/04/2014 at 3:19 PM in Farm Life, Garden Talk

Its spring time which means it’s the ideal time for those cool weather vegetables to be planted. The area beside our greenhouse was prepped with gold ole horse manure over the winter and has cured nicely. Now it's time to till it in. Lee brought over his 40V-X Expand-It String Trimmer with Expand-It Cultivator attachment so I could work the soil. WOW! Couldn't believe how well it worked. A must have tool for working small spaces. The life of the battery is amazing and the tool itself is so light weight! At first I didn’t know how well it would perform and how powerful the unit it would be because of its light weight stature. But it did indeed have a PUNCH and was very easy to maneuver.

In the future it’s great to know I have the option of doing the planting myself. I no longer have to wait on Lee to help fire up a heavy gas unit! We trimmed our small pasture 11 minutes before starting work on the garden then tilled for another 20. Great battery life. Can’t wait to use this tools on our other planting expeditions! Our soil is now tilled and clean and ready to plant strawberries and cabbages. We are looking forward to many juicy strawberries and to see what other trouble we can get into with our 40V-X Expand-It String Trimmer!
