LONG DAY


Got the soil today.  

2nd Man is sick as a dog and he had to stay home.

So I loaded 5 cubic yards of soil, one shovelful at a time into the cart, and then into the eight raised beds I built (pics coming later) and I topped off the existing beds as well.  I even got a bit of time on the Zen Machine.

All in all, a good, but very long and tiring day.

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Get well soon, 2nd. Man! 1st., I feel your pain. I have to haul my one yard of compost into the garden by 5 gallon bucket. I'd never be able to handle 5 yards!

That is a lot of soil! You must be very sore and tired. What is a card?

OOPS! Cart, ha. See, my fingers were tired too! Thanks for noticing, I have corrected it. :-)

Yes, he caught a cold on the airplane/airport coming back. Went from feeing fine to sick in a day. And he flies out again Sunday afternoon. It was not fun, the weather was cool, then hot, then a breeze, then hot. I almost gave up a few times, ha.

You take care too!!!

Snow blowing...I have heard that's a pain in the you know what. We hope warmer Spring weather is on it's way to you soon!

Yep, he's just got a cold, he wishes he could stay in town but duty calls. I took a long hot shower last night and slept in this morning so that was nice. Today is rainy off and on, colder weather coming, go figure.
