My Garden to Yours: Tilling Magic

My neighbour Iain offered to borrow his father's roto-tiller and lend it to us so I could till my garden.

Then, one afternoon, he came over and said he didn't have anything to do and could he till my garden for me. I was delighted. And I said I'd love it, but could I please snap some shots for our blog.

It's a magical transformation. Suddenly the hard-packed dirt is uniformly mixed and it's soft and bouncy to walk on. It affords you an intimate look at what your garden dirt is made up of. And I suddenly realized that the years of adding our kitchen compost and bags of cheap top soil and municipal compost and watching our worms work has finally paid off.
It's good soil! FINALLY! I'm itching to get my fingers dirty.
