Project 6 Update (but not finalized)

Finally...  The weather was nice! We tilled! And have a vegetable garden! And it has seeds in it! Can you tell I'm excited?!

But turns out there will have to be a project 6.5... We found a rock the size of a bathtub in the corner which will be staying put. Even the mower, me, Jeremy, Cole, all of our families and an entire football team couldn't move this sucker. 

We (aka Jeremy) tilled the garden yesterday... all day. It was quite the process. So much work, so many roots, rocks and other things getting in our way and binding up the tiller. Half of the garden will wait until the fall to be completed. We will lose some space with the rock but I will probably plant rhubarb or strawberries over it. We won't be able to till over it, too close to the surface. But it is far enough down that something could be planted over the darn thing!
