Glad The Glads Are In

I really need a wide furrow maker.  Call me lazy, but my feeling is that moving dirt in any way is best done from the seat of a tractor.  The  sub-soiler attachment did a good job of loosening the soil, but that was about all it did.   I still had to dig the trench with a shovel and that wasn’t a whole lot of fun.

Gladiolus Corms

I put 200 gladiolus corms in this trench and another 100 elsewhere.  Next will be 100 dahlia tubers.  I’m not sure if 400 corms/tubers is enough to bother making some kind of little V-plow dealie to bolt on the sub-soiler, but it sounded like a super idea when I was shoveling.
