First Tilling of the Year

While I was at work today, Dad went down to the garden and gave it the first tilling of the year. This is always a benchmark on the gardening calendar. This year's tilling is the earliest that I can remember in a long, long time. As a reference point, the first tilling in 2012 was on May 14th, in 2011 it was on June 15th and in 2010 it was on May 14th. Dad reported that parts of the garden were already quite dry and he actually was kicking up dust as he pasted by certain sections. He deemed it the "best first tilling he had done in years.
