Turning Soil

Last night I finally found some time to see if the tiller was going to start
work on preparing the veggie garden.
Let me put a plug in here for Mantis Tillers.
I have always wanted one and last year I finally got one.
I love it.
And after sitting all winter
it started right up
(well, after I remembered to flip the switch to the "on" position)
I managed to get about 1/2 of it done 
before succumbing to my new blisters.
There's more to do-
hauling manure from the barn
putting down lime
retilling the above in-
but it's started
and soon I hope to have some peas popping up.
(as long as we don't get the potential snow they're forecasting for this evening)
