tilling Martha's garden plot

Remember Martha from last year?

She's got her same plot again this year.  And it needs some love. 

Supposedly there's some garlic in there.

Luckily, the Handyman bought a tiller off Craigslist (thank you to two retired gardeners in Helena!).   After having such a good time blazing through our plots, he's decided to post a few flyers advertising his rototilling services for $15 per plot - not so much to subsidize, but more to justify his new purchase.  

It's a bit of a beast to handle (so I've heard), but it does the job pretty quickly.  If I were sans Handyman, I'd probably have to go for a little Mantis or something... But since I've access to the beast and the Handyman, I'm pretty content to watch my plot - and Martha's - get chewed.

Someone needs pull up his pants.  I wish I could be like the Pioneer Woman and brag about my fella's backside, but handyman just don't wear levi's like the cowboys do (or carharts).  

I'm okay with that.

I'm not okay with fingers heading towards sharp things.  

Don't be fooled though, the Handyman is quite safe. 

So... how bout them Red Wings?  For those of you luckier than me, it's Stanley Cup season, by the way.  

The final product? 

Dandelions destroyed while the garlic is safe and sound in a bed of straw.

Can't wait to check back, Martha!

How about $10 and a dozen eggs to till our second garden? I might have to call and mention it myself.
