Gardening is alive and well in the City....Maxwell tills in Leafgro

Max had a bit of tilling to finish up this morning so I rode with him. He and Peter have been working in this garden for a few years now. They dug the beds initially and now till in Leafgro a time or two a year. We've had a bit of rain over the past few weeks and I was a bit concerned that the soil would really be too wet to work, but they've improved it so much that it seems to drain and consequently was in good condition to work.

The vegetables, though the space is good-sized, are the lesser part of this garden but I'll save the ornamentals for another time. There's a good view of the vegetable garden from the dining room but you have to look over the Phalaenopsis. I love the shed.
