Playing in the dirt

"Gardening: the fine art of soul to soil" -Jan Bills

I have decided not to till up the garden this Spring.

Let me tell ya...It's a hard habit for me to break!
There's a part of me that loves seeing a clean slate every year.

I have decided to leave well enough alone, and just rake it into more uniform raised rows and tamped down walkways. The soil was easily worked and solidified my decision not to till.

I used Troy's Lute rake as my width guide for each row and a regular garden rake as a width guide between the rows.

The garden measures approximately 30 x 60 and will have approximately 28 rows in various sizes.  I've made it about 3/4 of the way through the rows and will finish up this weekend.
