Gardening has begun for me this year. Got it all plowed.

The old Ford did a good job plowing. I was impressed and really enjoyed working it.

Nope no tiller yet.

For this year a friend with a CUT kubota is supposed to bring his 5' tiller over.

That oughta do fine! The first year is mighty tough tilling with all the sod. The HD tiller is perfect. Next year any tiller you may get can handle it easily. Thanks for the pics & video!

I am going to try and run a disc thru it a few times before the tiller gets here. Might help it some.

Awesome post Chuck, thanks for the pics and video. Can never have enough of them.

Your little "Furrow Inspector" looks like she is hard at work and she is adorable.

Glad to get them. Garden Tractors are awesome. The work that one of these small machines can do is amazing.

Earlier this week my "Furrow inspector" told her mom that she needed to go out and look for worms.
