What an exciting day!

Big news today.  We have a tiller!  This may seem basic but it's thrilling. Renting one, and getting it there and back, were becoming quite problematic, and that is without considering that I've no experience with one and am not exactly what you would call mechanically inclined.  So, while spreading the word today I was ecstatic  to find someone who not only has one, and knows how to use it, but is willing to bring it right to the plot for us to borrow (and may even till it herself with her kiddo, which is great - that's what this garden is about).  So this weekend, or the beginning of next week, it will be tilled and stuff will be ready to go in.  The broccoli is getting so antsy that it can't come soon enough.  Everything else is still in the making.  It's exciting to know that the city will also deliver compost, so that is another huge hassle eliminated.    It is so exciting to see things fall into place.  What was just an expanse of dirt last week will be a garden by next.  Granted the plants need some time to come up, but you get the idea.  It's also fun to see others get excited about it too, and jumping at the bit to do what they can to help out.  I can't wait to see where this is going to go.  It's like standing at the top of a hill getting ready to roll a snowball down, knowing the gist of what will happen but not really sure how big it will be or what it will look like when it gets to the bottom  This is picking up momentum and it's exhilarating.
