Ever wondered "Hey, what does 10 cubic yards of soil look like?"
Well, for us, it got delivered in two piles by a giant dump truck. This one is 4 ft tall, by about 7 ft across:
Yesterday, while waiting for the dirt delivery, we put the wheel barrow together. And then it started pouring. We didn't get to move an ounce of this soil before the rain overtook and we couldn't even be outside. It was 40*, pouring down rain, and then started that freezing sleety stuff. YUCK!
I wanted to be shoveling manure... but instead I had to go grocery shopping.
So this morning, instead of my morning run, I decided I would go fill my first two beds.
Wet dirt is way heavier than dry dirt.
