Working the ground for carrots

To use my 6-row seeded to seed carrots I need a rock-free and debris-free seedbed. After using the bedshaper this is what a typical bed in the field looks like.

This is much too rocky for the seeder to work so that means I need to spend some time with a rake to get the desired results which then look something like this.

Ah, that’s much better. Now I can use the seeder. However, before I do so I plan on trying to get the weed seeds to germinate so I can lightly till to kill them and then I will plant the seed.
