Watch the video below or scroll down to read step-by-step instructions.

Step 1: Use a Broadfork to break open and loosen tight soil.

Step 2: Spread your soil amendments. We used chicken manure, gypsum, and rock phosphate.

Step 3: Work the amendments into the soil with a rake. A Valley Oak Wheel Hoe with a Bed Rake Attachment makes the job much faster.

Step 4: Mark your rows and furrow them with a Wheel Hoe and Furrower Attachment.

Step 5: Plant your baby peppers, tomatoes, etc.
