time to make the soil

1) My beloved roto tiller on loan from my parents, its makes soil building so much easier. The roto tiller is resting on our super wormy compost container.

2) Bumper Crop Premium Organic Soil Builder, if I could be sponsored by Bumper Crop and Schlitz I would be a happy man.

Organic Chicken Poo gets mixed with our own Compost as well as Lobster Compost, Peet, vermaculite and Cedar Mulch

4) These rubbermaid bins are awesome for mixing the soil in

5) Here is the side garden that we built last year, these are pine boxes that lay directly on the concrete, we put burlap cloth on the bottom of the boxes to minimize soil loss. If I get a chance I will post the building process from last year as well as some fotos of last years garden.

6) Building soil is dirty work, Snagglefin grabbed the Nature Shapes Paddleboard for a quick rinse to get the dirt off. Water was crystal clear and Caribbean blue but flat as a lake. While she grabbed the paddle I planted our Snow Peas and Sugar Daddy Peas using Legume Inocculent, let see how that turns out as last year our peas grew up to the roof line I cant imagine an even better harvest this year.
