Tilling Gardens

How deep should a vegetable garden be tilled?

Hi, There is no set depth that's ideal. It really comes down to how well your tiller works, but I like to be sure I get at least the top 6 inches of soil turned over. But, deeper tilling won't hurt at all. If you go shallower than 6 inches you won't really be doing much except creating a nice seed bed.
