Removing the sod and tilling the dirt

Its been raining this week, but this has not stopped us from working on the garden. Kyle's dad helped us A LOT! To remove the sod, we rented a large roto-tiller and tilled the soil. We are planning to install a picket fence, and have dug up holes in the ground for the posts. His dad taught us how to dig holes, and level the posts. Digging the holes for the posts was an all day process. We dug holes 2 feet deep, put the post in, and then added cement. Now we are ready to add the pickets for the fencing. And then finally start planting the seedlings. More photos to come!

  1. Looks good so far. But I know it looks GREAT in the end from the compost issue posting. Is that a field in the background? Are you not "house -next-to-house" in your area? You look like you're in the country compared to my location. We're so close that when the guy next door sneezes, I have to say "Bless you!" Ha! Ha! Not quite that close, but only TEN FEET house to house! The point is, rats are in the woods everywhere. We call them "wood rats" in the Hudson area. Everyone knows what you're talking about when you say that. They're a normal part of wildlife around there. So, you neighbor should expect them. As a matter of fact, she should worry more about chipmunks. If they get in your house, you have a problem!

    It looks like you have a wonderful location!


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
