This pic is 20 tons MINUS 3 wheel barrow loads. Had it delivered way long time ago (January?). Had big plans for the back yard - since we made the yard larger in the late fall, there are some places that need filling in, etc. Had this top soil dropped outside the fence so I would have to work harder moving it. The nice man who delivered it laughed at me when I told him that I would be moving this dirt. I planned for it to take about 2 months, which means I'm more than one month behind already.
I made three full wheel barrow loads on Saturday and I can feel all the muscles in my back and the backs of my legs right up to the glutes. Not sore, just feeling the cords.
So much for having a veggy garden going by Easter. So much for having certain things at all this year. So disappointed. But who can predict things like dental surgery??? dangit.
On the bright side...... The dill we planted last year came up on it's own this year. My lilac is blooming already. In fact, everything is coming back to life beautifully.
Didn't get as much done as fast as I wanted to, but I'm also really grateful that we didn't lose any thing to frost. The hummingbirds, butterflies and hummingbird moths are already visiting, which the kids enjoy.
Got my HRM on and am on my way out the door to move a mountain..... LOL
Got 10 loads today. This is what it looks like after those 10 loads. A dent. :)
