FOUR cubic yards of hardwood mulch.

It was delivered Friday late afternoon. It didn't even get to rest for a day. By Saturday at 3:30 PM it had been put away.!!!



It's amazing how quick 7 people can get things done. Especially with someone inside preparing food.


The only drawback....well I think it is a drawback....but G didn't!! G learned to drive the tractor. Of course my country girl loved it! It made me nervous, but Todd supervised closely. She didn't run over anything important.Bobby helped too. Mostly in the form of encouraging kisses while I was on my hands and knees spreading the mulch between flowers and plantsHere I think he thinks the photographer (J) is going to give him a treat.





We had enough for both front beds, the horseradish/rhubarb patch, around the north vegetable garden (I have/will have herbs pl anted here), the walk out the back garage and most of the border bed along the back of the house and walk out. It looks soooooo much better.
I love my present.

Thank you Todd!
