Soil, Stump Garden and Dump Wagon..

Good Morning..

The weekend has flown by so fast, I had a awesome photo shoot to do Saturday morning and then I went to be help answer soil and garden questions for a couple hours for the local 4-H Loyal to the Soil club that was presenting soil sampling tests at the local farmers market.  Then home to breath and putter in the yard.

Sunday morning was pulling up all the rocks and cleaning and working up the new garden bed area in front of the deck, then a clean up and off to visit with dear friends, hubby had some medical issues that week and was home recovering and we really wanted to get the chance to have a visit in person.

I picked up some flowers for the spring bee’s, they are on very limited feeding right now, they are only having tree pollen at the moment so adding in some extra flowers for feeding is a very good thing plus I just wanted some pops of colors in the yard!

Home again, Home again.. but not before I got new shoes and a new mop.. both things are required lol I had to plant out the stump garden, I might still add a spiking grass in the middle for extra height yet.

This morning, I got the text at 6:30 that my ten yards of soil would be arriving by 8 am.. its a good thing we got me a new tool to help in the garden.. I have found the bend down and lean over for the wheel barrel and when I hit bumps, its really jolts me and that can cause a lot of pain in my back at the moment.

So welcome to the farm.. the wagon! its got a handle that will lock in the upright spot, it can be backed in like a wagon for the horse’s and its a dump one, so I can load it but just tip it unload.. very handy indeed. its rated for 600 pounds. Loading once and then dumping also saves me some time and energy.

I will be getting the load of pine based mulch (cedar floats) for the pathways soon as I want to build in sections..  The front yard and the new kitchen garden is going to be AMAZING. I can see it coming together and I am so looking forward to sharing it with you all.

Well, I am about 5 posts give or take behind and I will do my best to write at least one more today before my head hits the pillow.. but I am looking forward to a coming rain day as need it for post writing.. back to the gardens/yard/farm with me.

Ps, the chicks and pullets have arrived..  a extra 78 chicks on the farm this week compared to last week!

    I’m really looking forward to seeing your new garden evolve. It’s great to hear about tools that aid work that would otherwise hurt.
