Though the top 1-2 inches of soil was frozen solid, I was able to break through and rough grade 10 planting beds at the new community garden project in Priest River.
The hiller/furrower attachment for my Troy-Bilt tiller saves countless hours by moving a lot of soil from pathways to the beds. It took over three hours to work this up and was quite a workout for this “mature” landscaper. 😉
(A long session in the sauna will do wonders for these sore muscles).
There remains a lot of hand work to shape these beds properly, but the machine got us off to a good start and will allow earlier work in the garden come spring.
I purchased this rototiller 28 years ago – it has seen more hard work than I care to remember!
