AUSTIN (KXAN) — It’s spring and that means it’s time to get those gardens prepared for your new crop of veggies! The Weekend Gardener, John Dromgoole, shows us how to break up the soil with a specialized tool called a U-bar or broadfork.

Dromgole will also show how to get the fertilizer and amendments exactly where the plants need them – just within the top 2-4 inches of the soil. If you are curious about the beneficial bacteria that John is using in this segment you can find more information here.
