After all the rain stopped I could get the sweeper out and sweep up all the oak and maple leaves and get them on the garden to till under for the winter.
This ground up until 10 years ago was the home of a school plantation of 1954 of jack pines. We took them out and tilled the whole 300' X 250' lot. We then limed and raked and seeded it. In the last 6 years we have had a garden in this spot. Each year we make it a bit bigger to what it is now. We actually opened it up another 12 feet this fall. One of the reasons we wanted to get some leaves on it to till under this fall.
Today I asked my neighbor to bring his Kabota with 4' tiller over to make short work of this tilling. He was more than happy to do so. He told me that he only uses the tiller on my garden so it's good practice. It took us longer to hook it up than it did to till the garden. Took a few pics of him and his toy tilling.
All done with outside work for this fall so now it's time for inside work and making a couple things for the sleeve hitch on the Homelite.
