Getting the soil ready for planting

Getting the soil ready for planting

Our gardening group every Tuesday morning have been learning how to prepare the soil, so it is ready for sowing seeds and planting. Our first job was to learn how to use hand trowels and hand forks. Using forks, we pushed the tines deep into the soil to lift and turn the soil, breaking any large lumps with the tines.
