Rain Rain Go Away! Even OUR Little Mantis Rototiller Can't Perform Miracles!

So, the picture you saw of John running our Mantis Rototiller in the front beds last week (see our last post, "Introducing OUR Mantis Tiller") was the last sunny day we've had since!

While we - gratefully - are not experiencing tornadoes up in northern New Hampshire, we have been getting a lot of rain. Fortunately, we live in the mountains and not a flood plain. But yesterday, we drove along the Androscoggin River in northern New Hampshire, and saw that a lot of people's farm lands and gardens are under a great deal of river flooding.

We did get a truck load of composted manure to load into the garden - and by the time we had unloaded it, we had to call AAA to get our vehicle towed away from our own garden and lawn. We didn't realize how soggy our own field had gotten over the last week.

So, we regrettably do NOT have pictures yet of our 2-cycle Mantis Rototiller workhorse tilling the garden. John wanted to try again today (Tuesday), but it would have just been "mud soup."

Hopefully soon!
