Rototilling the Vegetable Garden for Planting

When it comes to creating and maintaining a healthy garden, proper soil preparation is crucial.

Every year at my farm, we spend a good amount of time preparing the soil for planting. This includes removing debris and old root systems, tilling the earth to break up large clods, adding organic and nutrient-rich compost, and then building raised, well-aerated beds. It is a tedious process, but well worth the effort for a successful gardening season.

Here are photos from the first part of our process - enjoy.
