Q.Turning the Soil to Prepare for Spring Planting

RLWolfe added on January 17, 2011 | Answered

I plan to plan a backyard garden in 2011. I don’t have any real power tools for plowing or breaking up the soil. I will have to spade it up vs using a tiller. When whould I start? I have been told that I need to spade up the ground during the winter to allow the elements to brake down the soil since I don’t have a tiller. Is that true? and if so . . . when should I start digging up the garden spot?
