I decided to add some garden area to my suburban backyard. I tilled up the places where sun shines usually. Next to the three raised beds I put in last year. In one spot, I found that sun makes tree roots grow pretty good. The one made my new Husky extended sleeve shovel just groan out loud. It came out though. I was wondering what made that Bolens tiller buck and jerk so much.


I tilled up a few more spots, but this was by far the most difficult area.

I will probably plant lettuce and radishes later this week. Hopefully the weather starts warming here. I want to get the rest going.

It is always a nice feeling when you get something accomplished isn't it? Definitely a good size root.

Nice roots, I would have loved to be hitting roots tilling today than out in a thunderstorm clearing out a shed that is about to be overtook by a raging river....
