My New Toy!!

Sunday, April 19, 2009

Here's my new toy! The tiller we had gotten for my birthday back in December just wasn't going to do the trick. Yesterdy it would get stuck in the soft soil of the vegetable garden - it was just 1.something horsepower.

The BF called up The Depot and they agreed to exchange it even though he had bought it back in December. The one we have now is 5.7 horsepower (or is it 6?) - anyway - it's a nice, powerful, big tiller!!!!!! :) We didn't get anything planted this weekend like we had hoped but next Saturday we will be tilling and planting some early seeds - spinach, lettuce, onions, beets, carrots, radishes, and I think that's it. We might have more :)

Next Saturday it's looking like it's going to be 78 and SUNNY!!! WOW! I teach 7:30 am Cycle and then Strength at 9:30 so afterward it's mow the grass, spread manure and till the garden! YAY!

The boyfriend and the tiller...

Me and the tiller - me before that crazy 12 mile run!

    That looks like it will do the job your looking for. Always need the proper tool for the job.

    Nice tiller! Probably good that you haven't gotten anything in the ground yet. Planting this early in Ohio is hit or miss. Sometimes you're fine, but it's not unusual to get one or two last frosts in late April. Most gardeners I've talked to and websites I've looked at say to plant after the first week in May (in central Ohio.) Of course, if you watch the weather closely and cover the little sprouts with a thermal blanket you'll be okay planting early, too.
