Prepping the Garden

It’s that time of year again. ¬†The weather is getting nicer, Spring sports have started and we’re beginning to prep the garden for initial planting. ¬†Except for a few Spring cold snaps, we’ve had an incredible run of nice weather.

The garden starts out pretty rough, having been left to it’s own since the Fall and over Winter. The first step is to remove all the old plants and rake the garden in preparation to be tilled.

I then bring over last year’s barn muck as compost.

Then I use the 5-foot tiller on the back of my tractor to work everything in and cultivate the soil.

We’ve been doing this for a number of years and the soil is getting so nice. It will definitely be ready for planting this weekend.

Happy gardening everyone!
