The Broadfork

I got a broadfork!

This fun new toy loosens the soil to a foot deep, while keeping the soil structure relatively intact. Plus, it’s barefoot friendly!

I bought this model from Stefan at Wolfram Tools here in the Cowichan Valley. If you’re in the area, you should totally check him out!

Yesterday I spent three and a half hours loosening roughly 2000 square feet of the garden with this amazing tool, barefoot and all. This area had just been sheetmulched over the winter and covered with tarp, so it wasn’t very loose. This broadfork did it no problems! A couple of the tines bent out of place, but they were easy to bend back into place.
