Cultivating New Farm

I started cultivating the farm in Hisasue on Aug 9. It was quite a challenge because the soil was hard to dig using a shovel. So I bought a heavy weighted fork-shaped hoe in order to break the soil. After that, I dug the soil with a shovel and a flat hoe. During the cultivating, I found that the soil had a lot of pebbles. In order to remove the pebbles, I used a sifter to separate them from the soil. The total amount of pebbles was about 30 cubic cm against 16 square meters. It was finally settled on August 20. it was a tough job for me, but I survived and accomplished it!
