Spring's Here

Well, I think Spring has arrived in eastern Kansas. I think that deserves a journal entry. Never know in the future when one will ponder historic trends. The wife is getting antsy to plant the vegetable garden so I dashed out last night and tilled the garden. I feel it's going to be a good year for growing things. Soil looks real nice, assuming you like dirt.

Tillers with one speed and collapseable are evil! :) Great page!

Nice page. It's dangerous saying it's time to plant. I planted some tomatoes in pots (to keep them safe from all the rabbits and other pests here) and now they say we are going to get near freezing. It shouldn't get anywhere near freezing this time of year where I live!

Ah.... reflecting on your day of hard work with some creativity must make it a lot more fun!!

Wonderful rickety rototiller. Ours died last year. Bought it at a yard sale 10 years ago for $25.00. Guess I can't complain. We have had soooo much rain here in NH that I am not sure I will be able to till at all until July. Plants are already started in their little peet pots in the bow window. I can certainly relate to your wife's bit chomping.

Love this post! Planning to get some gardening machinery too someday ^^

I've already got green beans, potatoes, asparagus, squash, cucumbers, radishes, strawberries...hmmm, I know I'm missing something else, popping through the soil!! It looks great, so far, as long as we don't have another drought! I have found it very helpful to make these journal entries for later comparisons! Wonderful post!

I never plant a garden until middle of May. Even though I live in the South, we can have late freezes through the first of May. Great journal pages. Good luck with the garden. So sweet of you too to till the garden for your wife.

'bout time Spring decided to make an appearance! I've been feeling a tad bit guilty enjoying the warm, sunny Texas Spring while Bill suffers with 40 degrees back home in Kansas.

Nice machine, well drawn. I know how you Men like your machines - DH has one too and as soon as the water recedes he will be tilling too - I love planting a garden! (not the weeding so much ;)

Great drawing of the tiller- I love the comments pointing out all it's 'quirks'. Biking across Kansas, I'm definitely impressed!! :)!!

That looks like a mighty serious piece of equipment you have there. Me? I have a shovel, rake, hoe, and trowel. Oh, we do have a riding mower, tho. Great journal entry and drawing! nancy
