I really need to take better notes.


  1. i love it! can't wait to see everything growing.

  2. This took a lot of work. Someone borrowed the rototiller and it broke. The worms are happy but my back was not happy. I highly recommend this shovel though http://www.amazon.com/Fiskars-9668-Handle-Digging-Shovel/dp/B000B6Q6BA. I need to buy one or two more in case anyone stops by to help me garden. Need to finish digging out the front yard this weekend for more potatoes. :,)
