We had our first day in the mid 50’s° F of the year and it is only January, that’s pretty rare in central Pennsylvania. So I decide to take full advantage of the nice weather and get some early garden work done. The job at hand, the shredded leaves I put on the garden in the fall needed turned into the soil. I just worked my way down each bed turning the soil over with the shovel. Once I had all the soil turned over I went back over each bed with a rake and leveled out the soil.
First garden task of the year, complete. Only a few more weeks until planting starts.
