Inexperienced gardeners are often undecided as to the best order for tillage operations after plowing. Suppose that a heavy sod has been plowed and that the soil is a clay loam, what tools should be used and what should be the order of their use to secure the best medium for sowing or transplanting? The following program should prove satisfactory: (i) Dragging with the furrows; (2) disking with the furrows; (3) disking across the furrows; (4) dragging across the disk marks; (5) disking again if necessary; (6) harrowing with the Meeker smoothing harrow until the soil is thoroughly pulverized and the surface even and smooth.
