I just ate a mini TD. Delish. Well earned after aerating my whole lawn with a pitch fork like an absolute bloody idiot.
That is a bastard of a job. Doesn't help that I leave it until it hasn't rained in ages so it's like forking concrete.

Yeah I'll hire a machine next time. My poor keyboard hands are all beaten up! Gotta hit it with soil wetter and some weed n feed next. We've just moved in so haven't had access to do it any earlier but I reckon you're absolutely right, start of Spring with some intermittent rain would definitely help.

Yep, major gardening jobs gotta be commenced at start of Spring. Makes life much easier later on. Guess that’s where the phrase Spring cleaning comes from.

If you can't operate a pitchfork without regret I doubt power tools are the safest next step

Hope this is as good as the book.....
How can they make a new bible game when the definitive Christian game has already been released? The classic MS DOS title Captain Bible in the Dome of Darkness?

A real game that I really played when I was a kid and loved it. I still think it's pretty great.

I bought the cheapest pitch fork I could so it wasn't very ergonomic with the short handle. Hours bent over stomping it into hard turf and ripping it around in circles to open up the penetrations.

An aerator/corer would've done the same job in minutes with a handle at the correct height that I can stand upright. My back is shagged anyway from slinging drill rods up North in my youf bit I don't help myself sometimes going full steam at the chores.

Doing something like that requires deep thought prior to commencing.

My approach is to think about it, then do something else.
