What an awesome day today! I got what I needed to do DONE! I dug a few feet deep down in my new patch. I got all the rocks out. I will take a pic of that big one I got out tomorrow! I brought the compost over and spreaded it out well. This new patch should be great! No more compacted soil! Those roots should go down a few feet with the soil like that. Everything is coming together. The machine was pretty simple to operate. It was a beast! Next step is to flatten it out a bit and till the patch to get the compost in there. There is some clay in there but not much. Much better than I thought. This season already feels different. 1 month until planting! LETS GO!!!!
