Final Tilling

Tilled Garden

It was the perfect weather today to till in the winter cover crop. This was done with a hand held rototiller. I have not worked this hard outside all winter and just recovered from the flu! There were a lot of breaks and anti-inflammatories!

This will be the FINAL tilling I plan to do on this vegetable plot. After struggling with weeds, clay soil and dryness I did my research and decided to try the mulch method for holding moisture in the soil and wintering it over. It should also smother the weeds.We’ll see if this helps improve the soils condition.
