A neighbor came by and offered to rototill our garden for us with his tractor for the cost of the diesel that he would use. He did two passed and the dirt looks awesome. It would have taken Lee six passes and he still would not have gotten into the ground as deep at the tractors rototiller did. We really appreciated the neighbors help!
All but one of the fruit trees that we planted earlier have blossomed out. Hopefully the American Persimmon is just taking it’s own sweet time and not dead. I am going to be very busy watering all the trees this summer. We got 5 gallon buckets and drilled a hole into the bottom of them so we can keep track of how much water they are getting.
