Got started on enlarging the veg patch. Decided to rent a tiller and give it a go. Not a huge success. The area was rutted years ago when they first cleared the site in a wet January with heavy machinery. The perennial weeds have extensive roots (which I know personally), and then the tiller itself gave up the ghost and the crank cord broke when V tried to re-start it. Oh well.
After I go over it again to remove 1) the rest of the roots and 2) rocks and 3) shape the beds, it should double the size of the garden. In more good news, the rental shop has metal wire panels, so I can better support the tomatoes next year.
Breo, however, is delighted since fresh dirt is the Best.Thing.Ever.
