Spading the Soil at Mathis Vineyard

by Peter Mathis on April 20, 2015

In the last post, I showed you the discing process here at Mathis Vineyard. The winter was so dry though, the discing equipment didn't turn the cover crop deeply into the soil. It's just too hard and too dry. So I brought out the big gun: The spader! Where the discer cuts through the soil like a knife, it's not too deep. The spader, on the other hand, comprises multiple rows of mechanical spading implements to dig through the earth. The first video introduces it and what they look like. The second shows my results.
