Plowing the Back 400

That’s 400 square feet!  Brian turned over our potato/pumpkin patch this week.  We’ve got seed potatoes being delivered early next month so we need to get ready.  Every time the tractor comes out to work our little patch of land I’m grateful that none of the ‘real’ farmers around here can see our place!  What we probably should be using is a rototiller, but when you’ve got a hoss piece of machinery for scraping our half mile driveway and handling large round hay bales, it just makes sense to throw on the tiller.  We turn the raised beds by hand… honest.

    If Brian’s anything like my brother, the mere act of commandeering a large piece of machinery around the property makes you feel much more manly. 😉
