Nobody will like this one:

Wait til spring, and then no-till.

The disk will just wake up more weeds.

You may miss the tractor time, but little else.

At least one of us likes that idea. We quit plowing/chisel plowing/discing/cultivating/ect here years ago. Now we don't have to drive 5 miles down the road to visit what was once our top soil. We don't buy near as much diesel fuel, We raise better crops. And we did better that our neighbors who did plow when the drought hit this year. Oh yeah...and we farm 3 times the ground in half the time. 25 years since we started no tilling and I'm still looking for a negative. (Other than having to put up more grain bins)

It is hard to grow a market garden without tillage.

Not as hard as you might imagine. A good friend who lives in West Virginia grows what we used to call a "truck patch" that's for the most part no till (except where he has to dig to set plants) weeds control is done by mulch.

Besides, OP is talking about planting oats, no mention of produce crop.
