BCS-apalooza!

We did some serious BCS work today at the gardens! Homeschoolers now have a fully-prepped plot!

A BCS is an Italian-made “mini-tractor.” You can attach multiple implements onto this bad boy to accomplish nearly any task! The piece we have attached in these pictures is the tiller, which we used to mix up our soil amendments.
