Rototiller Magic

This is my first time planting a cover crop. I planted clover and peas. It didn’t seem like a lot of seeds so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

The clover ended up being much more robust than I expected.

I have barely had time to open Photoshop the past 6 weeks or so. I’ve been trying to give myself little assignments so I can remember how to do things. I had a screenshot from my tax preparation and it took about 15 minutes to figure out how to highlight one area for my future reference. Super useful. (Oof.)

Right after I planted the seeds there were cats and squirrels running around so there were patches where nothing grew. Colleague also planted a cover crop and the birds ate everything. He only got weeds.

But! He rented a rototiller and came over and did the garden in exchange for dahlia bulbs, chocolate chip cookies and half the rental fee. It usually takes me a half day and ruining my back to turn over the garden. This year it took 15 minutes.

I haven’t planted anything yet. Next weekend I’ll throw some greens and whatever other seeds I have sitting around out there. Don’t look to me for pro-tips. I am a lazy gardener
