DSCF4271.JPG In anticipation of the big rain storm we were to have today we wanted to till the garden one more time. As it happens all we got were sprinkles. Last night we applied weed preventer to the lawns in anticipation of the storm also. Here are a few pics of Bob using "Bob" to till mom's garden. DSCF4260.JPG DSCF4266.JPG

Man, That soil sure looks like good fine soil. I bet it does very well. The tiller was doing a great job getting the seed bed ready, maybe you'll get some more rain soon. :thumbs:

    We are planting Tomatos, green and yellow peppers, carrots, cabbage, radish, zucchinni, and Sun Flowers. The ground up until about 10 yrs ago was covered in Jack Pine trees. We had them removed and I used a Ford Tractor with a 6' till er to rework the ground and planted a variety type of grass. It actually doesn't do to bad at growing. I wish it were a little more rich. Finally getting the rain this morning we have been needing. WIll get everything ready to plant this weekend. Thanks. Roger.

Nice Job!  My soil is nowhere up to par by my own standards either but yours doesn't look bad.  Mine was terrible the first year but I add a lot of organics each year.  Lots of manure, whatever kind I end up finding, I mulch a lot with old hay or straw and that gets worked in also. This year, I plan on turning it in at the end of the season, rather than just tilling in the springtime.

We till it at the end of the year also. I don't have a lot of leaves to till in so I use a lot of wild berry briars, grasses and such to till in. This year again we will lime the ground and till it in. Hopefully it will help for next years crop also. Roger.
