Ready To Plant

Our last frost date for this area is May 15th. The last 2 years, we have had a frost after this date. I am hoping that is not the case for this year. The last few days including today have been in the 80's. The ground has dried out and it was time to till the garden. Michael likes to do the first big tilling of the year with a tiller that is pulled behind a tractor. We have 2 other families that go in on this with us. The one family picks the tiller up right before the rental place closes for the day. We are so blessed that they go and get the tiller, do the tilling and take it back the next morning. The tiller is on their tractor in the pictures above. One of their sons took our tractor and picked up their bush hog at their house and came back and bush hogged the garden area before they tilled it. I have most of my plants and seeds, now I need to decide what I will put in the ground before the frost date. =)

Dearest Marci, Darling,

It looks beautiful! But, you better keep on it, to keep it looking like that. Don't let it get away from you.

In Christ,

Mrs. M.
