I’ve written a lot here about how we prefer handmade and hand-operated tools and things to their modern counterparts. Preparing our beds for spring planting is no exception. This lovely old hand plough was found here on our land after we purchased it.
With the last frost apparently behind us and warmer temperatures something we can rely on, we quickly prepped and planted an enlarged version of the bed directly behind our home today. It was a full eight-hour day, but boy it felt good. I’m too tired to write it up here, but maybe tomorrow I will.
In case you are wondering, our son did volunteer for the job.
