What’s the Best Way to Prep Land?

Early springs around the US and Canada means discussions are heating up in the Backyard Riches forum on the best way to prep land. As with so many farming questions, the answer is, "It depends." There is no right answer.

For instance, the best answer in this case is not necessarily the obvious one. A large multi-segment area in the country can be prepped with just a spade, growing on a staggered basis over time. A small backyard area can be put into play with a rototiller in a few minutes. It all depends on the logistical and practical concerns a farmer is dealing with at any one time.

So whenever the answer is "It depends", that is not a cop out. It means whoever is answering the question operates in the real world and knows that the right answer is not a dictate, but a process.
