I was using a small tiller/cultivator.  Purchased a Broad Fork and haven't looked back.  I usually put leaves on top of the beds for cover over the winter and they breakdown over the cold months and mulch in during the spring.  Adding extra oxygen is great for the biology of the soil.  Its somewhat labor intensive at first if the ground is a new area or have not been tilled previously.  As for the invasive roots I do not have any ideas there.  I think that is something that will probably you would have to deal with.  I think the benefits of the increased micro and macro organisms is where it is at for great soil health.  
As for the tilling question.  I would not "till" the ground with a machine.  Using a broad fork to aerate the soil has worked well in my case.

Looking for suggestions for a decent grow light for seed starting indoors?  I am currently using 24" florescent bulbs and get decent results.  I am not sure if there would be a benefit to the LED's.  There are so many different choices for LED, just not sure which is best.   Mostly grow tomatoes, peppers cukes, beans etc.  Any help would be appreciated.
