We endured another round of rototiller, and working on sagebrush removal. This time we made great progress. Using good tools sure does help! I used a sawzall (reciprocating saw) with a small generator to help remove the sagebrush, and a bar to get down to the roots. The fertilizer spreader worked really well.

At the end of the day.
The fertilizer spreader worked wonders. It only took about 20 minutes to fertilize the whole eighth of an acre.
