The first step

"Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken."- Gen. 3:23. Big week here at the barn. Tilled up 'bout half of the north pasture for next summers market garden. Were really excited!
Here's before. This field got aged manure spread an' drug in the spring after the horses got moved to the upper meadow. The sod is real thick on the east side.
Rented a skid steer and tiller for a day and just got after it. Went east west first.
Then north south on the second pass. It's looking pretty good after two passes but we may just have ta till again in the spring if the grasses are real persistent. The soil looks and smells and tastes just fabulous but we're gonna test anyhow just to know. But from the looks of it we shouldn't need to amend it much. Thank the lord for indian summer.
