Final field preparations at Parr Field school garden

20140522-162213.jpgHere is a close-up shot of our hiller/furrower attachment in action.  I have to give thanks to a Santa Fe based donation group called “Bread for the Journey” for providing this piece of equipment years ago.  They also provided the cutter bar attachment for this tiller which has been invaluable over the years.20140522-162228.jpgThe rows are made, we just have to finish planting (or transplanting in the case of these four rows) and run some drip lines.
