My new garden cultivator!
Since we went to raised beds in the garden last year, we decided to buy a battery operated, light weight cultivator to mix the dirt up and loosen the soil. It works GREAT! We bought a Troy Built model, the battery lasts for about three beds worth and then needs to be recharged, but that's about the length of my stamina anyway! John did the work this time to "show me" how to use it, and then I just let him finish....(see how I did that?!) ha! ha!
Yesterday we pulled up everything left in four beds (one bed is full of garlic, so that won't be ready until about April or May.) Next up, building the new bed and putting the hoop house together.
