WIN THIS CULTIVATOR!

My thanks to the fine people at Earthway, the folks who sent me the cultivator and seeder I use in the kailyard, who support this farm through their ad buy, and who have been kind enough to offer this beauty to my readership. It is a 6500 High Wheel Cultivator, and it could be yours! These wheel tools take the bending over and constant hoeing out of weeding. They keep earth aerated, rows tidy, and are easy to assemble out of the box. You will need a screwdriver and a wrench, or a friend with a screwdriver or a wrench, but that's about it.

If you want to have this fine piece of human-powered farm equipment mailed to your door, leave a comment in the blog. One comment per entry please, BUT you can double your chances by sharing the contest with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc and coming back and reporting that you "CULTIVATED THE CONTEST ON "_______". Tell folks about this contest by sharing a link to CAF. No purchase needed to enter! Winner will be picked on Friday.

Now, get gardening! Oh, and recheck the Taproot post below, as Amanda and the crew at the zine are giving away a subscription!

I've always wanted one of these! I remember one being at my parents house when I was little. I tried using it as a child, but with splintered wood handles and a rusty wheel (and probably being too small), I didn't make much progress. Lol

Would love to have that cultivator, but honestly, I do not mind hoeing. Good think time, you know? I do think a tool like this would be great for the pumpkin patch. Not on facebook or any social media, not sorry to say, so cannot share any further. Also will say that I have enjoyed your blog for quite some time. Keep it up girl! Debby at Ole Lake Farm.

If I won this cultivator, I would put it in the free raffle that we will have at our 10th Immigrant & Minority Farmers Conference in February. Our farmers are new to our bizarre culture, but are learning to become self-sufficient as organic farmers because they know how to farm, don't need much technology or high fluency in English. They work so hard! This cultivator would make it a little easier for a lucky farmer.
