Preparing our Planting Beds for Fall with Row Covers

The summer gardening season is over with cool weather setting in so it’s time to set some row covers. It’s a bit disappointing knowing vine ripened tomatoes and an almost daily pepper medley are coming to an end for many months to come. However, with the changing of the seasons comes a new excitement. It becomes greens, soups and stew season! Along with a change in diet and recipes comes a modification of growing techniques. As the cool weather sets in we’ve chosen to set up row covers to protect some crops. Follow along and see how we’ve done it.

Review of the Maasdam Pow’R Pull PP100 Post Puller

Does the Maasdam Pow’R Pull PP100 post puller work well for pulling out posts?

We had about 40-50 t-posts that needed to be removed and re-purposed elsewhere on the property. My buddy and I dug a few out while leveraging them back and forth. It was a chore to say the least! I researched for a better way. There are a few different post pullers on the market while the industrial ones being cost prohibitive for my purpose. Beyond pulling these t-posts out I do not foresee using a post puller often. Hence, cost was definitely a consideration. We purchased the Maasdam Pow’R Pull PP100 and it performed better than expected! Learn about our experience and view the video to see it being used in action!
