Step 3: Break Ground and Add Amendments

Picture of Break Ground and Add Amendments
I used a roto tiller to break ground.  The house was built in 1949, and I doubt that there had been anything but grass at this site, so it took some effort.  When the ground was tilled, I shoveled compost on top and allowed it to decompose for about two weeks.  The compost I added was from a local garden show, and it was the consistency of rich potting soil with tulip stems and flowers (and the occasional bulb).
