Spring is here!

Brian had a little extra time off this weekend so we took advantage of it. Every year, we till up our garden by hand. It takes us a very long time and a lot of hard work but the end result is always worth it.

This year we did things a but differently. We started the same we always do.



We worked a few hours and actually were making some head way...but then we decided to get a bit of help. I know totally cheating!


But totally worth it!



Well that just freed up many hours for us. After a lot of discussion we decided to go ahead and buy a tiller. We had been putting it off but in the end it will reap much rewards. I feel like our plates are overflowing and spending that much time to do the work by hand was not really all that appealing.

I am striving to be more "simple" so buying a tiller was an investment! Brian agreed with my plea bargin side and so off we went to buy a tiller! We were on the hunt for a used one but we couldn't find one so we just bought a new one.



He liked his new toy! So did his helper.


It was a beautiful weekend! Have I mentioned how much I love Spring or how much I love this life?! :)

Oh garden planting time is fun! A tiller is a very nice thing to have - it definitely saves a lot of time! I hope your garden grows well! Ours is still covered in snow at the moment but before to long we will be tilling it up too.

Oh how I wish spring was here. We've had tiny spurts of it but today it is snowing again :( We do need the moisture so I shouldn't complain. Have a wonderful week :)
