Thanks for the video Brian
I got the gardens plowed on Friday, the next step is to till, but I think I'll hold off until the ground dries up a bit.
It was snowing here yesterday evening LOL

Thanks for posting the video Brian. The Deere is doing a great job getting your garden ready. Now if you could only get some of that really good looking soil to those folks in our parts of PA where we have a very heavy clay soil, we may have a better garden this year.

George, It took a lot of compost over the last few years to get it to look and grow as well as it does. The really great soil is in places like my mom and dad's place in IN.
