Garden Preparation

Tonight we continued our work down in the garden. After last night's epic mowing session, we were able to put our focus on the actual garden tonight. Dad brought down his tractor and began using the blade to level the soil. As he worked on that, I hand weeded the pile of Nature's Best soil that was left over from last year. It was growing an impressive collection of Canadian thistle. I wanted all of the thistle pulled before the soil was spread out on the garden onto low spots. When I finished with the weeded, I directed him where to place the extra soil. He leveled some more and then we were done for the night. Now the garden is finally ready to the first tilling of the year.
